This cake was very good. I did make changes, so if you're a purist, read no further..I used 4 very soft, overripe bananas, and a large can of crushed pineapple that I thoroughly DRAINED and used paper towels to get out the remaining juice. I also used a teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to give it some interest. I did not cover it in the cream cheese frosting, but instead made a drizzle of 4 T butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and about a cup of confectionary sugar. I sprinkled chopped pecans over the top of the drizzled cake. It was excellent. In fact, if you and your family can wait, I suggest letting it sit for a couple of days (mine is in a domed cake plate) as it gets even better with age (a lot like banana bread). I will definately be using this slightly modified recipe again and again, as only half of my family will eat bananas, but not a one had trouble gobbling up this cake!!! try it out!
