    I thought this recipe was fantastic! My husband is a firm believer that you must have eggs in order for a cake to taste great. He was pleasantly surprised to make an exception with this cake. He thought it was the best banana cake he ever tasted. I made this cake several times and tinkered with it a bit. I found that the baking soda left a slight aftertaste, so I reduced the baking soda to 1 1/2 tsp., added 1/2 tsp. baking POWDER, added 1/2-3/4 tsp. cinnamon, added 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, and 1/2 - 1 cup chopped walnuts to the batter. It came out perfect! You can also bake this in a 13 x 9 inch pan for 35-40 minutes, as cupcakes for 20-23 minutes, or as mini loaves for 30-40 minutes.  -  04 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The other day I had a few over ripe bananas in the fruit bowl and went in search for an easy recipe for banana cake - this was it! Buttermilk is hard to find in England and i love that this recipe uses ingredients that i've always got in the cupboard. (I took advice from other reviews and lessened the baking soda to 1 1/2 tsp and added 1/2 tsp of baking powder). The cake was a huge hit with work colleagues!  -  16 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I can't say that I cared for this recipe...even with the changes that were suggested by other members. The cake was just just too heavy.  -  18 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
