My whole family loves this cake, they even request it for birthdays etc.! I top the cake with coconut before baking and add a tsp. of cinnamon to the batter for extra flavor. This is my favorite cake to make and eat. Read More

It was good and very simple to make. I would advise to use half the amount of sugar- It was tooooo sweet!. Read More

I made a few changes, I used applesauce in place of oil and used half brown sugar and half white sugar as previously suggested. I am not sure if the changes changed the texture...the texture was somewhat fudgy(?) definitely not cake-like. I also greased my pan and dusted it with cinammon and sugar. Yummy! Yummy! My husband did not want me to share any with my coworkers.... Read More

I have made this a few times now and it is always a hit. I followed some of the previous suggestions and put half brown sugar and half white sugar. I also added cinnamon and cut back the oil. This cake is always better the next day! Definitely a keeper!!! Read More

Awwww yeah. This is one awesome cake my friends. I subbed 1 c. sugar plus 3/4. c brown sugar for the 2 c. white cut the oil in half and used 3 bananas because bananas are made of win. I also shortened the baking time to 45 min @ 300 but that's only because my oven is electric and therefore sucks. But in the end this is dynamite! Thanks for sharing! Read More

OMG!!!! Everybody at my game night loved this! I used 1/2 brown and 1/2 white sugar and only 1 c oil like the other suggestions. I poured the batter in the pan and layered the cut bananas in then layered more batter on top. I also tented the cake after 30 min with foil. I did not make icing. Next time I will top it with whipped cream. This would be great with a cup of coffee! Yummy!!! Read More

This is very similar to a hummingbird layer cake my aunt makes. Since this is made in the sheet cake pan it's much easier. I frosted the top with cream cheese icing. My family loved it. Read More
