Amazing cake! I baked this as a thank-you gift for my son's teacher. I used 1 box Duncan Hines Butter Pecan cake mix and chose to omit the frosting. I used thawed, frozen over-ripe bananas. I baked some of the batter in an 8 in angel food cake pan (the teacher's cake) and the rest in an 8 x 4 loaf pan. The cake was moist, fragrant with pecan, vanilla and butter flavors and surprisingly, the banana flavor remains in the background. This recipe is a keeper!!!
