    Not the best pound cake. But good when you need something other than a traditional pound cake.

    I made this when I needed to take a desert to a coworker that was laid up from surgery. Flavor was decent, but like chef #454846 my bundt fell apart. I had to make something else to take. If I make it again I will try it in loaf pans.

    i had a problem w/ my oven so i accidently overbaked it a little. but flavor still came out awesome. banana flavor was enough. for the ones complaining that this didn't have enough banana flavor..maybe it was because they didn't wait to make sure the banana's were ripe enough? i don't know if that's the case...but i did and mine came out yummy and full of banana flavor. i even added chopped walnuts on top. yummy! thank you for sharing a great recipe! will go into our favorites!

    Really moist but too moist. My bundt cake fell apart. But the small loaf pans I made came out perfectly. I used all butter, next time I think I'll use shortening and butter. I used banana extract and I think it needs more of it.

    We liked this cake but it wasn't one of our favorites. I think it could have had more banana flavor or maybe used more butter than shortening. Thanks for posting this recipe.
