MY REVIEW

I made this for our annual neighborhood Labor Day party and everyone wanted to know who made the banana dessert. Instead of mashing the bananas, I put both the sour cream and bananas in my blender to have a smooth batter. I also added a cup of blueberries to the batter that gave the dessert a little more juiciness and tartness. I only used the frosting on half the cake for those who preferred without any extra sweetness. It is definitely more cake-like than bread. It is a keeper for sure.

I made this cake to take to work. It was very moist and the icing was delicious . I only gave it four stars because the cake didn't rise as much as it looked in the picture it was more like a bar than a cake . Overall the taste was very good
