Update: I made this cake again today and used the baking method in the recipe; placing the cake in a cold oven. I do not recommend this. The cake was overdone on the top and the exterior was rather chewy. I had to take it out at 50 minutes as it was starting to burn. I am going back to the pre-heated oven. 9/17:Wow, this is fabulous! I used a Duncan Hines butter yellow cake mix plus used 3 bananas, added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1 cup of sour cream. This was so very moist and so tasty!!! Delicious! I baked for 40 min in a preheated oven and it was perfect! Thanks so much for an easy and tasty cake!


Love this recipe but watch the baking time. I didn't read all the reviews and just set my oven timer for 1 hr as directed in recipe. The cake was black. Had to throw out and start over. Baked second cake for just 35 minutes as directed on cake box. Made with 3 bananas, very moist but not mushy at all. Made a frosting of 1 tub of coolwhip, 1 small pkg of bananacream instant pudding and 1 cup of milk. Sprinkled chopped walnuts on frosting. Took to a dessert pot luck and everyone loved it. Will make again.


this is an awesome cake. I made a few small changes. I had 2 bananas and wanted it moist so I added 1/2 C applesauce and 2 tsp cinnamon. I made a cream cheese frost: 1 pckg Cream cheese, 1 C butter, 2C confectioner's sugar and 1-2 Tsp vanilla extract. I put this in the fridge while the cake was baking. I let the cake cool, then I cut it in half and put 1/3 of the frost on one half of the cake, then I had frozen blueberries, rasberries and strawberries that I put over the frost. then I put the other 1/3 of frost over the fruit. I put the other half over this and covered it with the rest of the frost and grated toblerone dark chocolate over it. tastes like a million dollars after chilling 1 hour in the fridge. thanks its yummmmmy
