One day I had 3 overripe bananas, no flour, no eggs, and four kids I did not want to take shopping. I made this up on the fly and now I make it all the time.

This was really good! I was looking for something to use up brown bananas and an extra box of cake mix I had on hand. I didn't want to make just regular banana bread again and this was perfect. I made it as directed but poured it into a bread pan and baked it longer. It was more brownie texture than cake texture tasted delicious. Sweet enough it didn't even need frosting and my kids loved it. Read More

It was easy to make and it was moist but I just did not care for the taste not sure why. I don t think I would make it again. Just for information purposes I did follow the instructions exactly. Read More

Taste was great! Texture and presentation? Not so much. I think it needs the eggs. I did it in a bundt pan and it looked good when it came out of the oven but had deflated down to about an inch within 20 min. The inside was too soft and gooey. Husband said "who cares what it looks like? It tastes good!" LOL - typical. Was easy though. Read More

I always use thawed out frozen bananas which have this glorious juice I use to substitute for any liquid in the recipe. Didn't have to worth this one. Wow. It was awesome. So moist. It's a favorite now. Read More

Moist and Delicious! We had a craving for sweets late at night and needed an easy recipe to prepare. Since we had these basic ingredients on hand, we tried it out. It not only baked to perfection, we created a brown sugar frosting and added walnuts. Everyone raves about how moist and delicious it was. This will be the desert we will bring to out next dinner invitation. Read More

It was easy to make with very few ingredients which I like very much also very tasty. Quite flat ten minutes after coming out of the oven and a little mushy inside but still was very much liked by everyone. Read More
