A year-round family favorite, the recipe for this moist layer cake was passed on to me by my mother. My grandchildren can't keep their fingers out of the icing, which tastes just like peanut butter fudge.
This delicious spice cake is bursting with the fresh flavor of ripe bananas and zesty orange peel. "I've packed lots of spices into my favorite healthy dessert," comments Sharon Carroll of Whittier, California.
My grandmother gave me my first cast iron skillet, and I've been cooking and baking with it ever since. Sometimes I add drained maraschino cherries to this banana skillet dessert and serve it with a ice cream. —Terri Merritts, Nashville, Tennessee
A dear friend of mine gave me this recipe and I make it often, especially for potlucks. Sometimes I make it ahead and freeze the cake then frost it before the party. —Merrill Powers, Spearville, Kansas
