"THIS absolutely scrumptious cake needs no icing...just a dusting of confectioners' sugar. Even though this recipe has been a 'family secret' for years, I'm delighted to share it with my fellow Reminisce readers."

"I am very disappointed in this recipe. Cake looked great in the oven but when finished and I brought it out to cool it flattened to half its size. Will not make again."

"I made this cake for the first time and I DID adjust the recipe to my own individual taste! This cake came out very nicely, too! I'd used: 5 Tbsp. butter, 1 Tbsp. ground navel orange,

1 cup mashed ripe bananas, 1-1/4 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. salt, 1 carton of Greek pineapple yogurt (a 5.3-oz. size with fruit on the bottom), 1/2 cup chopped pecans and 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips with 2 Tbsp. flour. I did not use regular shortening since I'd had the butter already measured out! I kept the eggs, vanilla, flour the same! I baked the cake 50 minutes in a greased and floured 10" fluted Bundt pan.
I left the cake plain! Thank you for sharing this recipe! it was a great way to use up ripe bananas which I'd had on hand, plus the Greek pineapple yogurt! I'd omitted the sour cream since I didn't have it available! delowenstein"

"Best banana cake ever. The cake is soft and moist. I use reduced fat sour cream and leave out the walnuts as no one in my family likes them. No need for frosting or even powdered sugar, because it is already sweet enough."

"Oh my goodness--this is exactly the recipe I was looking for. It is a light, fine textured cake, not a bread and it came out perfectly. I added some cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger to the nicest batter ever. I was very careful not to over mix it. It is now my go to banana cake recipe. It can stand alone without any 10 X sugar or icing. Thank you for posting it."

"Very good! I make banana bread routinely, and this recipe is a wonderful

Change. Moist, delicious and I made it exactly as recipe stated. Certainly more of a dessert than a breakfast bread."
