This cake is a personal favourite - moist, sweet, really easy to make. I love having it warm out of the oven.

I made this and took it to a pot bless and the pastor started dinner with this cake! He then proclaimed that all dinners should start with dessert first.

The bananas should have sugar spots (little black spots) and be sweet and almost overripe. Note - almost overripe, not already overripe. I buy these bananas because no one wants them (people usually want the nice ones with no spots), they're always cheaper and they are so good in this cake!
