My family loves this recipe - it is a "take-off" of my mom's famous Old-Fashioned Banana Nut Cake. It makes a lovely presentation and is the perfect ending to any meal. Serve with steaming cups of coffee!

Pam...where it says "make it your way...personalize it" click on personalize it and change the recipe to read however you want it, then print it out. Then you can make it from your own print-out♥

As far as editing the original recipe, only the person who posted it can do that.

Although, I don't really think 1/2 t of pepper will hurt the recipe if used.
I have a cookie recipe posted on here (JAP) that calls for pepper and it's great♥

Isn't there a way to edit this recipe to remove the pepper from the ingredients list?

I kept eyeing this recipe and finally made it last Thursday. I only have 8" no 9" so I had to adjust baking time, no it did not spill over! Everyone I shared with loved it! Can't wait to make it again.

If you want to make changes to the recipe go up to the list that's just below "pinched" and click on the "customize button". You can make your changes there for your self. No one can see it but you. You can then print it out.
