"Boxed pudding and cake mixes speed up the preparation of this moist banana cake," comments Karen Ann Bland of Gove, Kansas. "It doesn't last long at our house. In fact, my family and the hired men have it finished almost before it has time to cool."

This is a wonderful moist banana cake! Quick. Easy. I always make homemade buttercream frosting to top this crowd pleasing cake. No one would ever guess it begins with cake mix!

MY REVIEW

My husband is on a low fat diet so I am always looking for tasty substitutes for high caloried and fat laden desserts. This has been a favorite for several years. It is tender, flavorful, and delicious, even when I reduce the quantity of nuts recommended. I grate a couple of peanut butter cups on top to add color and substitute for frosting or a topping...scrumptious!!

MY REVIEW

This cake was so easy to make. I made it because I had some severely spotted bananas that I wanted to use, and it took me less than 10 minutes to put together. (And most of that time was spent digging out my electric mixer and walnuts from the back of the cupboard!) I highly recommend it for that reason alone, but I also received a ton of compliments on it from my coworkers, who loved the intense banana flavor.
