This is the best banana cake we’ve ever eaten! Super moist and scrumptious. And the chocolate buttercream icing is perfect with this cake.
I made this cake for a group of friends last week and it was a huge hit. After giving away a [stingy] piece to one of our guests, I froze some of the leftovers, ate the rest and then promptly took out the part I froze and ate that too. So good.
I found this highly rated recipe on two different websites – food.com and allrecipes.com. They both had instructions to freeze the cake for 45 minutes right after removing it from the oven. They claimed it made the cake super moist. I don’t know if that’s true, but I followed the directions and the cake was indeed super moist. So I’m sticking with that.
The only changes I made to the recipe were to reduce the sugar a bit and replace the icing. They used cream cheese icing (typical for a banana cake) and I used my own chocolate buttercream icing which I love dearly. Chocolate and banana is a fantastic combination I think.
This cake feeds a lot of people. It’s quite substantial, making it perfect for potlucks and parties. All in all, a real winner.
