Notes: This recipe does require a bunch of bowls, something that I personally hate – but the cake is well worth the time spent doing dishes after.  My family has stopped making banana bread because this banana cake is so good.

I did bake this in 2 large bread pans and it worked really well.  Since it was a little thicker it required more baking time though.
