    AMAZING!!!!   So moist and the buttercream is incredible. I only put 3 Tbsps in but that was sweet enough.  Thanks for the share, really lovely.

    Love this recipe, I actually used this recipe for muffins instead of a cake and they were delicious. I added pecans instead of walnuts as I had a few to use. yum and great to freeze now.

    Moist, buttery, banana cake! Banana is the hero. Great way to use 3 ripe bananas. Only made the cake & terrific on its own. Look forward to making the maple buttercream next time.

    Absolutely divine. I made this for a family barbecue - everyone was delighted. Moist, sweet, simply yummy. I made the buttercream icing but only used 2 tbsp of pure maple syrup - just enough sweetness to complement the cake. I will definitely be making this again

  • This recipe turned out

    Submitted by Mum the chef on 6. April 2012 - 10:56.

    This recipe turned out PERFECT! Light, moist & delicious. Didn't bother with the buttercream icing, as it really doesn't need it. It's lovely & sweet enough as is.
    My variation was that I added a handful each of chopped dates & unsalted cashews in the final step in place of the currants..... Mmmm yum.
    I also used 100g of milk and that amount was spot on for me. Will certainly make again, thank you! :)

  • This cake is great - lovely

    Submitted by thermovon on 28. March 2012 - 09:08.

    This cake is great - lovely and moist.  I can't comment on the icing as it has never lasted long enough for me to ice it.  I generally use about 60-65g of milk. :)

    This cake is fantastic! I made a gluten free version using gf self raising flour and 1/8 tsp of xanthan gum. I also used chocolate chips instead of nuts and currants.  My kids and friends loved it - perfect for our carols by candlelight picnic. Will definitely be making this again!!
