I made this for my husband last night and he loved it!!.. I didnt have cake flour so used all purpose..I made it in a bundt pan and then piped "Cream Cheese Frosting II" all over the top.. I then sprinkled some finely chopped walnuts to finish it off.. My husband likes cold cake so I put it in the fridge and he absolutely loved it!.. Kiki (Brampton,ON Canada)



This cake is WOW!!!! I am so picky about cakes regarding whether they are moist and flavorful. This cake/recipe is really superb. I am so glad I went with this recipe of the many banana cake recipes on this site. The reason I did was that I did not want to buy a whole container of buttermilk that the other more highly rated recipe had. This banana cake called for sour cream and cake flour and I had both at home. I do find that cakes that call for cake flour are more tender and moist and this one holds true. Like other reviewers suggested...I used 3 bananas which measured 1½ cups of mashed banana. I followed the recipe exactly. This is the most delicious cake I have made in a long, long time. My six year old son asked if he can have this cake for his birthday cake next year.



One word - ohmigosh!! I love bananas and this is the best recipe I have tried for Banana Cake (I have tried several on this site). It is moist, fluffy, easy and deee-li-cious!! What's more, it is the perfect size - 9 in. square pan - for a small family or a small get-together. You don't have to worry about eating leftovers for the entire week , although this is sooo good, you WOULD want to eat this cake for an entire week. Thanks for sharing.
