I had three bananas turning a shade of black in the fruit basket today, which inspired me to make this fabulous banana cake recipe. It takes five bananas to make the cake as it is a very large banana cake. I had previously put some aging bananas in the freezer, so I could simply defrost them to make the cake.
This easy banana cake is a great one to bake at the start of a week, as when kept air tight, it stays moist for some time and is big enough to be included for most school lunches during the week.
