Good banana cake recipe. Very moist and tasty. I made a few changes. I didn't have any sour cream, so I used plain fat free yogurt instead.

This was moist and rich like I hoped it would be, but it tasted to me like banana bread, not cake. I was hoping for more of a cake-like texture so it wasn't a favorite for me.
