“This recipe is from Bette Hagman's dessert cookbook. It is so delicious! Until tonight when I made this recipe I had never tried banana cake before and I wasn't really sure what to expect. But I was happily surprised that it was a very light, not too sweet,very yummy refreshing cake.”
18-24 pieces of cake
