What makes this cake so "wacky"? You mix it right in the pan, no need to get a bowl dirty. Also, there are no eggs in this cake. Wacky right!?

I found this recipe in my Better Homes and Gardens baking cook book. I've baking this for 10 years. It's always a hit. The original recipe is baked in a 8x8 pan. I doubled it and us a 9x13. I also use more cinnamon than the original recipe.

My brother in law really isn't a cake fan, now that's wacky! He loves this cake. It's so moist and the toffee chips give it a nice twist.

Whenever my bananas get too ripe I pop them in the freezer. Then when I need them I defrost them and drain any excess water. This way I always have ripe bananas on hand.


Enjoy!
