Recipe by Sandi
"This recipe is a family favorite. It is great for using overripe bananas. I usually double the recipe and make two loaves. You can also add walnuts if you wish. Note: When your bananas are overripe, you can put them in the freezer until you are ready to use them."

1 1/2 cups
very ripe bananas
What a success!!! This recipe was delicious. I didn't have any 'over ripe' bananas, so i used 4 instead of the recommended 3. I also covered the top with foil for the last 15 minutes which slightly steamed the loaf and made it deliciously moist!! Will be making this one again very soon!
I make banana bread all the time and I'm always looking for a new banana bread recipe. This one is not it.
"Banana Cake" is misleading because it did not have a cake-like texture to me. It was yet another average bland banana bread recipe. The exterior gets too overdone and brown while the inside was rather dry. This is not a recipe that is different enough to stand out among all my other banana bread recipes.
The banana bread is delicious!
With the 1 cup of sugar, i halved it using half
white sugar and half brown sugar and it came out yummy! Definitely make this again =)
This banana bread is awesome! I used 4 bananas, and added about 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and a couple of handfulls of chopped walnuts. I did have to bake it for about 1 hour and 10 minutes, but it was well worth the wait. I took it out of the oven about 20 minutes ago, and it's almost gone! Great recipe!
What a great recipe. I've never had banana cake, and to me this tasted just like banana bread--which is exactly what I wanted. It had a great banana flavor, and was perfect for breakfast. I also cut down on the sugar (to about 3/4 a cup) and it was perfect for my taste. Thanks for a great recipe!
I have been making banana bread/cake for about 25 years and this is the best I've ever found. My kids (4 & 5) love making it w/ me - it's a great kid friendly recipe. If I serve it for breakfast I serve it as is, sometimes w/ butter. For dessert I make a powder sugar or cream cheese glaze (depends on what I have on hand) and pour on top of it while it is still warm (not hot)- this is my husband's favorite way to eat it. The glaze makes it more of a "cake" but still not overly sweet like regular frosted cake. Thank you Sandi for a great recipe!
Tasty! I made one change--I cut the sugar back by half. I had a two-pack package of Nature's Valley Oats and Honey that I crushed up and sprinkled over the top before baking, just to use it and get it out of my pantry. I'm glad I cut the sugar by half. My bananas were really ripe, if I hadn't it would have been way too sweet. Nice basic banana bread recipe. I got 12 medium sized muffins out of this recipe. 350* for 20 minutes was just right.
Absoluiely Delish....made a few changes but this must be the best banana bread I ever ate, Used half whole wheat flour and added pecans, used half spenda instead of all sugar, will cut down on sugar next time, thought it was a tad bit too sweet, thanks for a great recipe
