This cake doesn't need any frosting—just a dusting of powdered sugar. Guests are always amazed that I made this treat from scratch.—Denise Loewenthal, Hinckley, Ohio

"So easy to put together. I added some mini chocolate chips to mine. Just delicious. I like the idea of substituting buttermilk for the water. I will try that next time..but quite good the way the recipe is written."

"This recipe is nice and easy to mix together. It's a great cake to make for busy week nights, or whenever you need a treat that comes together quickly. I like to add some chopped nuts to the batter, as well for added cruch and flavor."

"I must admit the only reason I tried this recipe was because I was out of eggs! Now, it is a keeper. A great combination between cake and bread. Since I had buttermilk on hand I used that instead of the water. A great recipe that we will be making for years to come. The first time I made these out of necessity now I make them because they are so well loved!"

"I have been making this for years. When my now 12th grader was in 4th grade, he loved it so much, he asked me to make it for every potluck at school. I was asked my many parents for the recipe."

"This is definitely a keeper! I'm always looking for recipes that make a smaller amount (for 2). More than that, this cake is moist and sweet, and you can taste the banana! In lieu of the canola oil, you can always substitute it with 1/3 cup applesauce to make this a completely fat-free cake, with all the moist flavor and goodness! For a finished dessert, I might frost it very lightly with my caramel icing. A KEEPER!"

"My husband really enjoyed the cake. He liked it better than my banana bread recipe. He said he could taste the banana in it."

"Delicious tasting, dense cake. I missed my deserts and finally found one without eggs or butter for that matter. Wonderful with a warm tea or coffee. This will become one of my regular deserts from now on.

For a change, add chocolate or cinammon or apples for that matter. All would be good I'm sure.
Thanks for sharing and share others like this is you have any such deserts."
