    Yummy...the frosting is really good but you only need a thin layer I put too much frosting on. Less next time

    Great! Husband loved it! This is my second cake. Only change was that I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Will definitely make another one!

    Used greek yogurt and it turned out slightly drier and bouncy. I also forgot to put vanilla extract but the cake still tastes good!

    A simple and yummy cake. I did use yoghurt instead of sour cream because I had not sour cream in my fridge. My partner and work colleagues devoured it!

    So good and moist. I actually did recipe with Bob's Red Mill 3/4 cup gluten free flour + 1/4 cup buckwheat flour, 1/3 cup coconut sugar, without frosting and it is absolutely top notch!

    i loved this cake! So delicious and moist. I couldn't get the directions to pull up on my phone so I mixed all the dry ingredients together and then mixed all the wet ingredients together and blended both. Turned out great. Will definitely make again!

    It was very good...and moist. We didnt try the icing. We used a cream cheese icing that we already had. The baking time was off a bit. You definitely need to bake longer. Great recipe!

    This was a simple, easy and great cake. The flavor of the bananna cake paired with the peanut butter icing complements one another. Although I used almonds and almond extract instead. I will make this at one of my catering events
