I added some cardamom, cinnamon and allspice to mine and only used banana because I didn't want it to come out tasting like a banana nut bread with extra flavors added to it and I'm happy I did; the banana flavor was nice and blended with the other flavors well, not dominating as I feared 2 mashed bananas would be. I looked up some of the history of this cake and a lot of people claim that originally it was a kind of spice cake so that's another reason why I added them. I used pecans instead of walnuts this time, and overall it was a really delicious cake. I folded the egg whites in at the end as well. Overall, it's a pretty decadent cake, it's one of those that you bake to kind of impress people, not really because you're craving it so bad. It's not my favorite sort of dessert. I like my desserts a little bit simpler, but I just wanted to try this. If the opportunity comes up I would make this cake again.
