Reviews for Bananas 'n' Cream Bundt Cake
"Terrible! I bake all the time and found this cake to be dry and if I ever left it in the oven pursuant to the directions I would have had a charred piece of dryness. When I made this I thought only 1/3 of shortening and I was right."
"My first try at banana bread failed. I tried this recipe and score! I used butter instead of shortening n added a little pumpkin spice. It baked in about 40 minutes n came out delicious!!! Thanks for sharing!!!"
"I have made many loaf banana breads in my lifetime and then went to the same recipes in a 2 qt. pyrex dish because it baked faster. Now that I have tried this bundt cake I will never go back to anything else. It was scrumptious and light. Thanks so much!"
"7/16/15: Baked in bundt pan 50 minutes and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Excellent and easy. Will definitely make again,"
"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."
"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."
