I added cinnamon, used greek vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream, and added a strawberry puree swirl. Baked in a bundt pan, and then topped with a coffee/chocolate glaze. SO amazing!
Has anyone tried this in a bundt? I was just curious. Thought it would look good on a cake stand
I make this whenever I have a bunch of very ripe bananas. The cake stays moist for a few days, so we have time to eat it all. I add chopped nuts either walnuts or pecans to the recipe. I have also added extra sliced banana, which is a favorite with the family. The extra banana stays as moist chunks in the cake.
This is a family favorite! Every time I make this for something everyone raves about it and asks for the recipe! So yummy!
This is a family favorite--delicious flavor and a great use of bananas. I do have a problem with the center falling as it cools, though, even though it rises properly and the tester comes out clean. Next time I will turn off the oven and leave it in a few extra minutes and see how it goes.
this was a great snack cake...very easy to make...
i just love this cake. its easy and i love the fact that its great without any kind of frosting, as i rarely frost a cake in my house. there is never any left!
Delicious! Good picnic cake as you can eat it out of hand. I used 1/2 cup mini chips, 1/2 cup toffee bits and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. Very flavorful. Next time, I'm going to try using a jellyroll pan to make it more of a bar recipe. Husband even commented on how good it was. A real keeper!
This is awesome! I've made it for years now. Although, I started making it in muffin pans. It takes about 18min to cook. I usually have to use 3 bananas to make a full cup. I always get compliments when I make these.
This is in my "Keeper" file, tastes great, easy and everyone loves it. I did change one thing however, I cut down on the total chips, it seemed a bit over chocolatey .... but it still is awesome!
I have made this delicious cake many times and everyone enjoy! Sometimes I made it in bundt pan cake and glazed that with chocolate instead of chips chocolate and it could be delicious gift for your friend!

Caramel and cake. The subtle sweetness of the pound cake combined with the browned butter and toasty sugar flavor in the caramel sauce icing creates a dessert well worth the time to make it.
