"This is a no-frills cake that tastes great with morning beverages or as a snack. It's good for using up those overripe bananas that you hate to throw away." — NH Nancy

butter or margarine
ripe bananas, mashed
1 1/4 cups
I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon into the recipe for a little extra flavor, it turned out great :) A couple years ago I had this recipe for cinnamon coffee cake that was very similar to this and I used to add bananas to it. I lost that recipe when we moved, and this really reminded me of that bread recipe. Thanks for the post
I wasn't a big fan of this cake, not because it was bad, but because it's so nondescript. It's not particularly flavorful or even pretty or interesting to serve. Adding a teaspoon of vanilla and a lemon buttercream frosting did little to overcome that. Simple it is, I'll give it that, but unfortunately this cake is completely forgettable.
easy, excellent. I made a couple of changes:
substituted 1/4 c greek yogurt for 1/4c of the butter, added 1/2 tsp vanilla to wet mixture, substituted 3/4 cup whole wheat flour for regular flour, put in slightly less than a cup of sugar, and added 1/4 cup oats.
It's exactly what it says it is. Very good, and very simple. Having said that, I tweaked the heck out of it the second time I made it. After I mixed the batter I added chopped walnuts (1/2 cup or so) and a chopped FIRM banana. Then, after pouring it into the pan I topped it with a standard streusel topping. Lemme tell ya... over the top!
This is a good banana cake, but the name is deceiving. This is by no means a coffee cake. It has a great taste and texture, looks just like the photo, and bakes exactly 30 minutes, as the recipe says.
This was fabulous! Moist and light and yummy!
