"This cake is a very moist banana cake that travels well to pot lucks or picnics. It can also be baked in a 9x13 pan or an angel food cake pan. It is a family favorite." — Barbara

This is the best cake I have ever tried bar none. Only changes was I added 3 bananas, and cream cheese to the icing next time I will doit as a layer cake with a cream layer in the middle and a fudge icing, try this you will love it.
Very ordinary, nothing special. No disguising it's a doctored up cake mix. I made this many years ago when it first appeared in a magazine advertisement. Not bad if you're just looking for something that'll pass. Making your own delicious banana cake doesn't require a whole lot more effort and reaps a far superior reward.
This is AMAZING! I thought it would be good, but I was surprised with just how good it was... And how easy to make! I used a 'banana cream' pudding mix, 1½ large bananas, and I baked it in a 9x13 metal pan. It only took between 35 and 40 minutes, so be sure to keep an eye on it or it might end up kind of dry. My cake was wonderfully moist. I followed the glaze recipe but added 4 oz of softened (left on the counter for a couple hours) cream cheese. I needed a little more milk to make it spreadable, but it was awesome. Sprinkled some walnuts on top, and let it set for a couple hours. I DID leave it in the pan, but it's easy to lift out slices if you grease and flour the bottom of the pan. We had company over and she loved it! Thank you so much, Barbara!
This is the recipe I was looking for, not for banana cake but for zucchini cake! Use a package of lemon or vanilla pudding and add 2 cups of shredded zucchini, 1/2 to 1 tsp cinnamon, and a dash of vanilla if you wish. I also used applesauce instead of the oil and used 4 egg whites and 2 eggs instead of four whole eggs to cut down on fat. Very moist, and very delicious!
Just a yellow cake mix cake, with slight banana flavor and a ton of sugar for a glaze. Won't make again.
This recipe is awesome... I have made it 3 times in the past two weeks. My family likes it better made in a 9x13, with cream cheese icing and refrigerated. Perfect to take to office, church, anywhere.
This was an outstanding cake, and very easy to make. I served it at card club, and it was a big hit. Everyone asked to take a piece home with them. The cake was gone before the night was over. I will definitely make this one again.
Best Banana anything that I've ever had. Thanks a Ton Barbara cuz thats how much I'm gonna weigh after discovering this recipe. A definite do again.
