    This cake would be perfect for Easter Jessica. You may need to make a little extra frosting if you are doing a layer cake. Also, watch the cake carefully, everyone’s oven is different and it may bake faster. Have fun and Happy Easter!

    Jessica, not sure if you printed this or not but I was checking the recipe and the baking time was incorrect. It should read approximately 30 minutes. I have made the correction on the recipe post.

    I have loved banana bread for ages, so this looks like it would be super delicious! The cream cheese frosting would put me just over the edge. Gotta try it!

      Thanks Pat! The cake is really good. Very moist an like you said the cream cheese frosting puts it over the edge. It’s well, it’s “the icing on the cake”…lol!

    Hi Monica!
    I just discovered your Blog last night around 11 pm while looking for new sandwiches to try with new soups and chowders for the upcoming winter season. We don’t have much of one here in Florida so I have to think ahead with only about 3 months,if that to enjoy the cold weather and I only like to eat soups and chili in cold weather. It has been such a horribly sweltering Summer here, and my neighbor and I are usually outside on our porches chatting most of the day when I am not reading while he is off working on someone’s car. I first came across your Seafood Linguine recipe and it looks delicious! Then I started perusing your site and this morning (5:55 am now) and came across this Banana Cake with cream cheese frosting. About 6 months ago I discovered 2 kinds of individually wrapped slices of one: a Banana cake with cream cheese frosting and , two: A Carrot Cake with cream cheese frosting in some of our local convenience stores.(Not sure what they are called in Canada? In NY they are Bodega’s,other places minute markets,ore brand names 7-Eleven or Circle -K etc, just a small store to pick up last minute groceries or soda,cigs and candy) The company that makes them is called Nemo’s. I first tried the carrot cake and was stunned at how incredible it was!! Back before my daughter blew up my car I quickly went back and bought 3 more slices! It was so dense and moist.I saw they had a Banana cake too so I tried it. It was good too but not as moist as the carrot. I soon had trouble finding it anywhere,especially the carrot cake. I would find the empty Nemo’s box (have one on my counter ) but no cake. I am so happy I found your recipe and can’t wait to try it. I have plenty of carrot cake recipes, but for an excellent quickie way the Duncan Hine’s Supreme carrot cake that has the carrots and raisins you re-hydrate in water is the moistest box cake mix i ever tried. And by a fluke I ran across my cream cheese frosting recipe last night(I use to work in a bakery and was a cake decorator apprentice) My recipe uses 12oz of cream cheese and I always like a lot of that flavor so I would probably just double yours.
    I noticed while going from recipe blog page to the next on your blog at how much we seem to do things alike even so far as to how we tear out lettuce for a BLT! LOL! I bet if we were neighbor’s we would be good friends as we have a lot in common.Maybe not now though as my health has severely declined and I have many different things wrong with me but am in the process of trying to get the ones that can be fixed, fixed so I just have to worry about the ones that can only be treated to make me feel better.But when I had my young family and was in my 30’s I was on the go all the time and I started cooking blogs and recipe books before they were even invented. I started to make picture cookbooks for my kids and after making one with other peoples recipes and photos I started making one of my owns photos and recipes. I have never finished it but still have hopes to one day. I need to move to a larger place to have room to organize all my sewing and crafts and cook books and cooking equipment and then perhaps I will get back on track! Thanks for a great blog! I will write back a short note when I am able to try anything. Right now I have no car and my child will rarely take me anywhere and I am not even able to get rides to my many doctors or the grocery store so everything is on hold, even my health and hopefully nothing bad will happen before I am able to get a car again and see my docs.I am getting a small inheritance soon maybe enough to get a used car and get my teeth fixed that my medications totally destroyed so bad I can only eat soft foods. Am just waiting for the check to arrive. The house was just sold on 9-30-16 and I don’t know how long it takes to divide 5 ways legally and get the check in the mail,but if it takes as long as it has for my older sister to get the measly 500 dollar check in the mail that was a stock divided 5 ways, then I will never get it because it has been 6 months and I haven’t gotten that one yet and I had a 500 dollar car lined up that my ex-boyfriend already bought for me to buy from him but he may have had to re sell it by now! Everything happens for a reason, I am a true believer in that and it happens that way because it is going to happen a better way the next time if it doesn’t work out the first time!
    I hope you have an easy winter Monica! I saw a couple of your photos and I can’t imagine! I have lived in Florida my entire 56 years and have only seen a little snow a couple of times. We actually had some here that even stayed on the ground for a couple of hours and that is rare! I have seen snow 3 times in Florida in my lifetime and once in another state. I would love to live in North Carolina USA but due to my extreme arthritis I could never bear the cold, but the Florida humidity isn’t much better for it! At least I can predict the weather with my body and know whether or not I need to take my umbrella. It is not an old wives tale, you feel extreme pain when rain is coming the next day or even a few hours away!
    Take Care Monica! Sorry this is so long, it is one of my bad habits! I should have been a blog writer! Michelle

      Hi Michelle, Thank you so much for the lovely note and kind words. I am so sorry to hear that your health isn’t great. That can certainly complicate life in so many ways.
      It would be fun to have you for a neighbour, maybe you would have given me some cake decorating tips. I took a couple courses, but it is definitely not my strong point!
      Don’t worry at all about the length of your message, I loved reading your comments!
      Take care of yourself Michelle,
      Monica

    Monica, I thought I was sending that message to your message mail. It is so long. You can delete it after you read it or leave just the recipe part if you want. I am not worried but did not intend for it to be taking up your comment space. I tried to edit it but cannot.

    This does sound like a great cake, I have a freezer full of bananas and I get tired of making banana loaf, I will have to give this a try!

    Saw this post of yours a few days ago and I had to try it out myself! The cream cheese frosting was such a great addition to the classic banana cake. It was really moist and delicious.
