I remember banana cakes being popular when I was a kid and haven't had one in AGES. Was looking for something to do with browning bananas other than banana bread and this came up. What GREAT memories it brought back! This cake was wonderfully moist, not too sweet, and the frosting was the perfect match to the cake. Would not change a thing.
By the way, this cake freezes BEAUTIFULLY. If you have leftover bananas that will be tossed soon, make up this cake, and when it is cool, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and freeze. Frost it when thawed (or even almost thawed - cold cake will preserve the cream cheese frosting a bit). I made the cake in a 10" round pan, and froze the round cake. When I had last minute guests coming, I pulled it out, let it on a footed cake plate and frosted it with the icing in the recipe. It looked lovely, and the flavor was rich without being over-the-top, and everyone loved it.
