Mom's Lemon Cherry Banana Cake

Carol Junkins


Ok so I had all these ingredients in the house and thought I would try to figure out how to make something with them. Came up with this cake, now it is not real sweet as I used a Lemon Cake from Duncan Hines as a base ~ My husband loved it !!!! Just love making something special with what we have in the house !
