This is a wonderful moist banana cake! Quick. Easy. I always make homemade buttercream frosting to top this crowd pleasing cake. No one would ever guess it begins with cake mix!

My husband is on a low fat diet so I am always looking for tasty substitutes for high caloried and fat laden desserts. This has been a favorite for several years. It is tender, flavorful, and delicious, even when I reduce the quantity of nuts recommended. I grate a couple of peanut butter cups on top to add color and substitute for frosting or a topping...scrumptious!!

This cake was so easy to make. I made it because I had some severely spotted bananas that I wanted to use, and it took me less than 10 minutes to put together. (And most of that time was spent digging out my electric mixer and walnuts from the back of the cupboard!) I highly recommend it for that reason alone, but I also received a ton of compliments on it from my coworkers, who loved the intense banana flavor.

This was a really easy cake to make. It was very, very moist so cutting it without crumbling the cake was challenging. The taste was great. I will make it again. I may refrigerate it for a while before cutting it so that it's somewhat firm first (?)
