Good banana flavor, moist, dense. A winner! I used 4 very large very ripe bananas, which mashed = 2 cups, and the cake turned out perfectly. I also added 1/2 teaspoon salt, for as an experienced baker, I know baked goods taste best with a bit of salt added. Note however that I only baked the cake for 45 minutes in an oven calibrated to 350 degrees via my trusty oven thermometer. I have found that substituting 1/4 cup of the butter with applesauce does not change the flavor or texture of the cake one iota, and does cut down the fat a smidge. I also didn't put the topping on, as I don't like really sweet toppings. A cream cheese frosting would be lovely. I love this cake unfrosted -- a great and healthy snack cake, and a yummy breakfast alternative too.
