  1. Hi Monica, I’m going to make this for my husband’s birthday this week. He always loves walnuts in his banana bread. Have you ever tries putting walnuts in this recipe?

    1. Hi Tomi! I have not tried that but I imagine it would be great! Try it and let me know! 🙂 Blessings and Happy bday to your hubby!

    Hello, what size pan do you use for this cake recipe? Thanks.

    1. Hi there! 🙂 In the recipe it says that it is for an 8X8 inch pan, but I typically double the ingredients and use a 9X13 inch pan for my family (and leftovers are great if kept in the fridge!) Thanks and Aloha-

    This cake is delicious! I had some VERY ripe bananas and I didn’t know what to do with them…Well, I made this and crossed my fingers….It was amazing…its so good my kids are eating quietly! This will definitely be made more around here…

    1. SO happy to hear that! (quiet kids = successful cake for sure! :))
      Yep, we’ve made it a ton and never get tired of it! xoxo

    Are those blue dishes, the cake is on, from Southern Living at Home? I was a consultant and have a couple that were samples for display/shows and they look the same.

    Today is my son, Luke 20th Birthday! This will be the perfect cake to make for him. He is on a health conscious diet. Thanks for sharing. I will let you know how it turned out!

    1. I always say–I’ve never met a Luke I didn’t like! Something about that name…:) Happy Birthday to Luke and please do report back! So far I’ve heard 100% positive feedback! 🙂 XO

    You got my mouth watering, and I don’t like bananas! I’m going to try it with gluten free all purpose flour, but don’t know what to substitute the bananas with. Any suggestions? I know I’ll be the one to eat 90% of it, so may as well make it for my liking! I love white cake, maybe I’ll just make it plain? Or, how about peanut butter? Banana consistency is hard to duplicate! Guess I’ll get creative…..will report back.

    1. apple? Or dates! 🙂 You’re in Arizona after all, maybe a date cake would be good! XOXO

    Thank you so much! I made this for my husband, Dave, too, and he liked it very much! Kids, too!

  9. Merry birthday to Dave! 😀 (And it’s good to know that no matter how many years go by, food is still a perfect example of love when it comes to dudes. 😉 )

    This cake needs to be made in my house, like, yesterday. My mouth is watering! 🙂 Question: Do you think that the cake would turn out all right if I substitute agave syrup for the sugar? Will it throw off the caketasticness? (I am not blessed with baking brilliance!)

    1. Thank you so much! Please try the agave–I’d love to know. I haven’t played around with gluten free or no-sugar options on this one, but I really ought to. Report back, k? 😉

        Reporting back for cake duty! 🙂 OK, I made several alterations, since I have a sensitivity to all things dairy (*tear*) and haven’t purchased sugar in… at least half a decade (whoa). Here’s what I changed:

        1. Butter –> Earth Balance
        2. Sour cream –> Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream
        3. Sugar / powdered sugar –> Maple syrup, agave, and arrowroot powder (to give the syrups more substance)

        Fair warning: I’m not sure if it was due to the alterations or the fact that the bananas I used were only juuuuuust beginning to develop banana-y freckles, but my cake had a distinct not-quite-ripe-banana bite to it. It wasn’t unpleasant, but it wasn’t as melt-in-your-mouth as things concocted with fully-ripe bananas tend to be. (Next time, I’m going to utilize bananas that are practically brown to see whether it’s the non-dairy-ness or the banana ripeness that causes the super-fresh banana taste.)

        Homegirl, this cake was gooooood! If it’s as tasty as it was with all of the substitutions I had to make, I can only imagine that it is positively outstanding with real dairy! 🙂 You’ve got another winner here!

  10. This looks delicious! Wonder if I could use almond flour for a gluten free option. Mmmm. Happy birthday to your sweetie. And tell Josiah he is getting really good with that camera! Impressed!

    Happy Birthday Dave! And what are the crazy odds that earlier today I suggested to a friend that she make a banana cake for her grandson’s first birthday! He’s getting his cake in a monkey shaped pan!

    1. Dave says thank you Susan! 🙂 And I hope your friend tries it! A monkey shaped pan? I’d love to see that–How adorable! sending aloha and sunshine your way–
