    This is a terrific recipe. I didn't have the 10x15 jelly roll pan, so I made it in a 9x13 pan. I had to leave it in the oven for about 10-15 minutes longer, but the result was a moist, banana-y, cake-like dessert! I didn't even need to serve it with the recommended chocolate sauce and whip cream! Definitely a keeper.  -  25 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was wanting something a little healthy but not a bread since my husband doens't like banana bread, I tried this dessert and it was delicious! I did use 3/4 cup and 1 tablespoon of applesauce instead of butter and 3 egg whites instead of 1 egg. I also used 3 really ripe (almost black) bananas and lowered my sugar to 1/2 cup of each. I used a bar pan and the bars came out moist and more like a bar with a little cakey spring to it. My husband loved it and my son devoured his. Great recipe!  -  26 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is now what I make every time I bring a dessert into my daughter's class, she requests it as well as all her friends. It's kind of nice to bring to school something other than cupcakes and cookies. Works well if you use whole wheat flour, also!  -  18 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
