Loved this cake and the combination of frosting and cake is wonderful. My family loved it too and I would suggest it too.

MY REVIEW

Only two of the four in my family like bananas but the two of use that do like this cake. The sour cream makes it super moist. I used a vanilla bean cream cheese frosting for this because the two of use don't care for coffee. The banana flavor is a nice change to the typical white cakes at potlucks.

I also have made this recipie for many years in a 15x10 pan.....got the recipie card that I cut out of a previous Taste of Home magazine! I will substitute some banana extract for part of the vanilla for more banana flavor, I usually use a cream cheese frosting.....moist and delicious and easy to make!
