Banana Cream Cake

This cake is always a little different texture due to the ripeness of the bananas, but always good and so very moist! This cake won a Best of Cake Category Blue Ribbon for me at our annual County Farm Fair in 2006. This is a favorite of my family. A good way to use bananas that are too ripe to eat!
