I made this cake for Easter this morning. It is the best tasting cake! I followed the recipe for the cake exactly. I ended up having to bake it 1 hour and 25 minutes, after the first hour I tested it every 10 minutes with a toothpick. I baked it in glass pyrex and went right from the oven into the freezer. I also had to make a carrot cake so I didnt want to use the cream cheese frosting on both cakes. So on the banana cake I made a glaze instead. The glaze is a 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup milk, 3 cups confectioners sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Heat the 1/2 cup butter and milk in a saucepan over medium heat until combined, about 5 minutes, stirring the whole time. Stir in the confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. Pour the warm frosting over the cake. It will set in about 10 minutes. I also sprinkled some walnuts on the top. Seriously one of the best cakes ever. Got rave reviews! I am sure it would have been just as good with the cream cheese frosting but I wanted the 2 cakes to be different. PS..SAMS carrot cake is to die for too!!!
