Wonderful Banana Cake
January 06, 2008

Definitely worth the 5 stars! I always have leftover bananas (my kids won't eat them if they have even one spot!) and don't have time for a long complicated recipe. This really fits the bill, and I was pleasantly surprised how good it came out. It smells wonderful while cooking. I pre-heated the oven and baked for 40 minutes which was perfect. I did add 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 cup choc chips. I agree with another reviewer, I don't think it needs the chocolate chips, so I won't be doing that again. It is sweet enough to not need a frosting but is really good with also. I am so glad I found this recipe and highly recommend it. We couldn't wait for it to cool in the fridge, we ate it warm from the oven :) Update: I made this with a Butter Pecan cake mix and it was just as good, if not better. Tip: if you're short on bananas, you can throw in one of those little applesauce cups (I've done this when I've only had 2 bananas, makes the batter thinner but the cake still turns out great in the end, very moist).
