TWD- Lots of Ways Banana Cake

This week's selection for Tuesday's with Dorie- Lot's of Ways Banana Cake, was chosen by Kimberly who blogs over at Only Creative Opportunities. You can find the recipe for this versatile, delicious cake on her blog.

I have made this cake many, many times and posted about it twice. It was one of the first recipes I tried from Dorie's book.
I made it once as a layer cake with Blackberry Buttercream. That was for my going away party when we moved from Utah to Georgia last year.
It is so simple and there are quite a variety of ways that you can make it based on what ingredients you have on hand.

It is definitely a great way to use up ripe bananas and I will make it again.
Check out TWD to see who else made this cake and what they thought about it!

I love the frosting color, so pretty! This cake is a keeper. I want to make a layer cake next time. For the sake of time I made it in a 9x13 pan. It was so good and moist!
