Luscious Banana Cake

My husband has a fondness for banana desserts and banana bread, and since I aim to please,
often times I pick my recipes with him in mind.
It gives me a lot of satisfaction to know that he enjoys something I’ve made.
This banana cake turned out so delicious,
and while the cake is a dense cake because of the bananas in it,
the frosting is so light, and so they complement each other nicely.

The recipe is from a tiny spiral bound cookbook called 101 Recipes with Bananas.

16.5 ounce yellow cake mix

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 nicely ripened bananas, mashed

Now if your bananas are soft enough, just mix all the ingredients together with a mixer.

Pour into a greased and floured 9×13 inch baking dish,
and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for around 30 -35 minutes,
or until the cake will spring back when you touch the middle of it.
