This wonderful cake can be enjoyed for afternoon tea or special occasions, such as birthdays. Two layers of banana cake are filled and topped with buttercream icing.
cake is good and does not need frosting. I did everything as stated except I add only 1 cup of sugar and still tasted good and I also made it in a bundt pan.baked approx 40 min. - 23 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wow, was this cake good!! This was the same recipe my mom had in her recipe file, except hers called for shortening. Now I have it online! I HIGHLY recommend the icing she uses: 1 stick melted butter or margarine, 16 oz. box of powdered sugar, 1 mashed banana, 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Cream butter until fluffy, gradually add powdered sugar, and beat well. Beat in mashed banana. Stir in pecans. WOW! The cake looks so impressive with pecan halves pressed on the top outer layer, too. Thanks for the recipe! - 28 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very very good cake, I made this with whipped cream cream cheese frosting, also on this site, and used walnuts. It was delicous. - 06 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
