Banana Sour Cream Cake

This banana cake is very moist and also light in texture. It is a wonderful cake even without the icing, but if you love your cream cheese frostings you'll want to add it too. Any type of icing would be delicious.
Most recently, I tried a chocolate glaze on top with sliced almonds and it was delish. Next, I want to try a peanut butter icing and see how that pairs with it. It is an easy cake to get creative with.

I found this recipe in one of my Kraft magazines.

I hope you enjoy.
