When you make a really moist banana cake recipe, the flavor can really stand alone. If you would like to frost it, I would suggest using something simple, like buttercream frosting, so not to fight the banana flavor.

A banana cake recipe is a great way to use up bananas that are getting a lot of brown spots. That's when they are at their sweetest.Sometimes, you just can't use up the bananas fast kids think there's something wrong with them when they have spots. (Maybe, it's just a good excuse to make this tasty cake).
