We've made this cake once before and really liked it. We're planning to make it again for Reuben's birthday so I had to search and find it again, and then thought I'd better bookmark it in this recipe site to make it easier to find next time.
Yet more advice from a fellow dumpster diver on how to use up all those bananas. She says: "found online..this tastes good with strawberries and sugar on top."
It was hard for us to come up with a name for this one. Pake called it "turf" when he refused to eat chocolate cake – now he asks when he can come over for the birthday cake (and he knows it will be this chocolate cake). It is very moist. Dawn and Rachel never missed an opportunity to celebrate a birthday at school by bringing a cake – and someone inevitably made a comment about how moist it was. At college, too, whenever there is an occasion to celebrate, this cake shows up, and comments are made about how good it is and how "it must be from scratch, it is sooo moist." (In fact it is really easy to make).
