Two beautifully moist chocolate sponge cakes are sandwiched together with chocolate icing and sliced bananas.
I made this for my hubby on his birthday and he loved it. The cake itself is awesome. It came out moist and tender. I took out 1 star for frosting because I didn't like its tangy taste. But this was the first time I had ever tasted cream cheese frosting.So it might just be me. So I added a little bit of melted chocolate and some more sugar to the frosting to make it more sweet. Also a TIP for adding bananas. Layer them just before you eat. Also don't leave the cake outside for long. Otherwise the bananas leave water and the layers will slide. Mine did the same thing. And I kind of didn't like the flavor of the softened bananas. Next time I think I ll add the banana cut up fresh while serving. But overall a very good tasting cake.

This is very good! Try it with fluffy peanut butter frosting instead of this frosting, if you like peanut butter. When I do this, I usually decorate it will Reese's pieces. Yum! - 09 Jan 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My review is for the cake only, which I made into cupcakes The cake is delicious, subtly chocolate, more boldly banana flavored, but there's no mistaking either. Moist, soft and fluffy, milk chocolate in color. I had nothing against the frosting - it's just that I had a request from the recipients for something deeply chocolate, which I accommodated with the more robustly chocolate "Best Chocolate Frosting," also from this site. It was the perfect choice for these cupcakes, a bold counterpoint for the milder cake. One half recipe yielded one dozen cupcakes, which I baked 20-22 minutes. Great recipe, but not as good with the directions, so here goes: sift the dry ingredients together and set aside. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, then the vanilla. Add the bananas. Add the flour mixture in three additions, alternately with the buttermilk , beginning and ending with the flour. Done. - 26 Feb 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
