  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9 inch round cake pans.
  2. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium size bowl.
  3. In a large bowl, cream the butter or margarine. Add brown sugar, sugar, allspice and nutmeg; beat until light and fluffy. Mix in eggs and vanilla extract. Add 1/3 of the dry ingredients to the butter mixture; mix well. Add the sour cream; mix well. Add another 1/3 of the dry ingredients; mix well. Add half of the bananas; mix well.

I substituted plian yoghurt for sour cream because we didn't have any. Superb Cake



The taste was great...I didn't think the allspice overpowered at all. Two aspects that I didn't care for: the crust on mine was rather thick/tough...more like a bread than a cake; AND even though I put the oats in a food processor to break them down just a bit, they DID seem to be a bit much in the texture department. I would make this again but leave out the oats. (and FYI, a cup of banana equals two bananas)



Excellent, forgiving recipe. I was halfway through making this when I discovered that the two big bananas I had the day before had mysteriously become just one. Not wanting to have to go to the grocery store, I used 1/2 cup pureed, cooked sweet potato in place of the other banana. The cake came out FABULOUS, with a mere hint of banana taste, making this perfect for those who think they don't like banana cake. I added 1 tsp cinnamon, because it complements the flavor of banana anything. I used dark brown sugar, as well, since that was all I had. In a 10-cup bundt pan, it took 50 minutes to bake completely. I glazed it with a cream cheese glaze (1 Tb softened butter, 4 oz softened cream cheese, 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1 Tb milk.) It came out tremendously moist, and received rave reviews. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
