I was worried about this being dry like the other reviewer commented so I made a few minor adjustments. I used 1/2 cup of buttermilk in place of the 1/4 milk and used 3 ripe bananas which was probably more like 1-1/4 cups mashed. I also baked this in two 9" cake pans (the batter was the perfect amount) at 350 degrees for 27 minutes as I wanted to make a layer cake rather than the 13 x 9. It turned out pretty darned good! Not dry at all. I frosted this with a chocolate buttercream frosting (at the request of my daughter). The kids dove into this when they got home from school today. It's not going to last long that's for sure. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
