“I found this in a magazine years ago, it is one of my most requested cakes. It is very easy as you just throw the ingredients in a bowl and mix. I have substituted the buttermilk with 1 Tbs of vinegar with 1 cup milk with good results. Watch the cake after 35 minuets, it is thick and can go from undercooked to overcooked pretty easily, which I always find with a banana cake.”
