    Absolutley stunning recipe! I very rarely bake and this was just so simple that I have mastered it and cant get enough of it. My kids love it!  -  13 Jul 2014


    My mother in law has a banana cake receipe that she is guarding like the family gold but my husband craves the stuff like a pregnant woman. So I came here looking for something that might tide him over till our next family outting and he actually said it was better than his mothers. Score one for the wives. Anyway. I love this receipe. I love that we throw sliced banans in. I really think that makes a difference. We eat it plain and frosted. I always make it in a pampered chef stoneware bar pan and it comes out so nicely.  -  10 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    As I was saying to a friend, any recipe made by someone named Bertha HAS to be made by me. It's GOT to be good. I did throw in a tsp. of baking powder and a half tsp. of salt. I didn't have quite enough chopped bananas, so I took what was left of a pound of organic strawberries, chopped them up and threw them in, too. This took about an hour to bake, give or take, and it came out moist and fluffy. I didn't have any with the family, but judging by their faces and lack of conversation at the table, they enjoyed this. I DID NOT make a glaze for this. This one's a keeper.  -  31 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
