I don't give this cake any stars, I am a scratch baker, don't know what came over me to try this, it taste's nothing like homemade, their is a difference, the frosting is Waaaaaay to sweet, and I put way more confection. sugar than suggested, I am going to put this cake down the disposal, I will stick with what I know to be delish. I have had many delicious recipe's from this site, this is not one of them. AND, it looks nothing like the picture. If anyone wants to try it, you go ahead, I want to read your review.

It tastes so good and the banana makes it moist and I was impressed and so will my family. Thanks for sharing, Jan. Dot Shaw in Tilton, N.H. where today is cloudy and cool.

The combination of chocolate and banana was a big hit with my co-workers. It was really moist. This will be added to my favorites.

I omitted the oil, as georgeff did, thinking I would shave off some of the fat per serving. My results were not as good, unfortunately. Next time I will follow the original recipe as tested, because they always turn out right that way. The flavor of the cake is delicious, but the texture is very spongy and strange.
