"Super quick - super delicious! Was ready to go in the oven by the time it preheated. Stayed moist and delicious! Cheated with a can of cream cheese frosting and it was just enough! Great dish for a party or crowd. It's a keeper!"
"Absolutely delicious! Moist & flavorful, & easy to make! I didn't make the frosting because I'm diabetic & all my kids have grown up with cakes without frosting (except for special occasions) & think they're too sweet with the frosting. Have to admit I was tempted to try it, though--sounds delicious! The cake alone is excellent! I'd add a little more vanilla next time, though, just to meet our tastebuds."
"You will have to try really good"
"I made cupcakes from the recipe, it makes about 15. They were absolutely delicious !!Such a simple, good basic recipe.......very moist, very flavorful. definitely a "keeper"."
"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."
