This is one of the moistest and tastiest desserts I have made and is a big hit for anyone who eats it! It is so delicious that I rarely make it because I cannot resist eating a lot more than I should. HAHA! I try to make it when we have company or family with us for that reason. This dessert and chocolate pie are my downfalls. Everyone who tries it wants the recipe. TIP: When I mash the bananas before I start, I always add extra banana flavoring to keep them from turning black and to give them extra flavor. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

If you love banana bread then you will LOVE this banana cake! The extra banana flavor you get in the icing is wonderful. Marilyn is right... it's hard to eat one slice. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
