"wonderful flavor and texture. The title of this recipe speaks true. I replaced shortening with butter, and added 1 1/4 cup mashed banana that I had in the freezer. Made in a 9x13 pan and baked in m..." See morey oven for 45 minutes. I made a 'review' mini muffin and this is outstanding. Light and airy but yet rich tasting w/the butter substitution. Made 'WHIPPED CREAM CREAM CHEESE FROSTING' recipe from this site (by Tom) and if you have never tried this frosting, it is a must. It is so addictive and is the perfect compliment to this cake, as the frosting is very light and whippy and not sickening sweet. Made a day ahead for a treat to the co-workers tomorrow. Thanks for this lovely and easy recipe."
"This cake was NOT fluffy or cake like. This tastes exactly like dense banana bread. I followed the basic directions except subbed real butter for the shortening and cut back on the white sugar slight..." See morely. After reading reviewers problems with sticking I decided to try muffins. I got 12 nice sized muffins (used liners) cooked in 18 minutes. This does have a light banana flavor. I used the Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting recipe by Tom (which was fantastic). I will continue to try banana cake recipes from this site that are actually fluffy and taste like cake."

The buttermilk will curdle the batter upon a..." See moredding it! This is normal! I threw it out and tried it again the next day with a new carton, and then realized it was fine the first time. This cake is fluffy as it claims, and has a really delicious crust. I also used butter instead of shortening and will do the same next time."
