    I don't even like bananas but my family does. I made this cake for them and it got rave reviews! My husband, father, & sons have all requested (demanded, really!) that I make it for Thanksgiving, if not sooner. This recipe is a keeper!!!

    You may not have given credit to Southern Living which is where I got this recipe. It came out in 1998 sometime. However, thanks for posting it. I didn't have time to let the cake cool completely so the caramel sauce basically soaked in to the warm cake which was delicious. Took it to a baby shower & everyone wanted the recipe. I also didn't have shortening so used all butter & I added a second banana for even more flavor. Not only yummy, but it's a great use for overripe bananas!

    The combination of the banana with the caramel was great. This took much longer than stated in the recipe to bake though. The glaze was too much, so I reserved some & poured it over each slice to serve.
