My sister gave me this recipe. I am not a fan of banana cake but this is truly amazing. It was one recipe that I get the most requests to make. I freeze my bananas and just put them defrosted, straight into the batter. Tip: If bananas are added into the batter as one of the last ingredients, they will not turn black in your cake. The order they are in this recipe is to prevent them from turning black.
