    1Steve posted this recipe after I posted a request for a recipe for a banana coffee cake that called for banana liqueur. I baked the cake and it turned out to be pretty good. I cut the recipe in half and baked it in a 9x9 pan. I used glaze #2 since I was out of bananas after I made the cake. I added a little lemon zest to the icing for a different twist. The cake is very moist and has a nice texture. It's not too sweet, even with the glaze. My husband liked the cake very much and I'm sure that he'll ask me to make it for him again. The cake and frosting do not taste like bananas foster but it does have a nice delicate banana flavor to it.

    beckas, thanks for the excellent review I am so happy the cake turned out well for you. As for your comment that the cake and frosting don't taste like Bananas Foster I feel I owe you an explanation. You requested a recipe that used banana Liqueur and I found this one for you. However it was simply called banana coffe cake or something like that where I found it. I changed the name so that it would stand out as an liqueur containing recipe. I needed a way to make people realize this was not banana bread. Hope that helps ;)
