After first trying this years ago my 2nd son declared -who needs banana bread?! - and this became our favorite choice for doing away with overripe bananas. The recipe originally had an optional chocolate glaze, I've always skipped it and just added a light dusting of confectionary sugar. This is a pretty sturdy cake which makes it great for picnics, potlucks and lunch bags - the same son recently took 1/2 a cake with him for the drive back to S.CA! An extra note - seeing some of the comments - this is not a tall cake it only rises a littel more than half way up the pan. Ovens are different - go with a shorter cooking time and check to see if needs more.
