"In Brazil we call this Banana Cake, but when I baked this for the first time here everyone started calling it Banana Bread. You can add nuts in the dough or on the top if you wish."

I love to bake, but I would be 400 lbs if I ate everything I bake so I bring it to my office and when I brought this bread in I had about 10 requests for more bannanna bread. Easy to make and everyone loved it.

You said that your friends said that this was banana bread?, I'm afraid that they don't know what banana bread is then. Bread is heavier and not quite so sweet. Your banana cake is wonderful. My husband and daughter both love it, and they are very finicky about what they eat. Just thought I'd tell you how wonderful your recipe is. I have never had a recipe for banana cake before, but I will keep this one forever, and pass it on to my daughter also. Thank you.

Pretty easy to make and smelled delicious. If I make it again, I would briefly soak the bananas in lemon juice so they don't darken. Also, I cut the bananas lengthwise because the recipe didn't indicate crosswise or lengthwise and they looked like anchovies on top when baked. So I dusted with powder sugar to hide.
