Salted or unsalted butter?

Hi Rosemary, you can use whatever you have on hand. Both will work well in the recipe - it just comes down to personal preference!

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!
