Wow! so quick, easy and sooo delicious

DEE WHISNANT from CHARLOTTE, NC

This is one of 3 cakes I made from several leftover bananas. It's my #1 favorite and the easiest I've ever done! I didn't have yellow cakemix, so I used white (classic recipe) and white WHIPPED vanilla frosting. I gave away most if it (being on a diet) as I did with the other 2 cakes, and everyone seemed to like it best. MOIST and full of flavor! I highly recommend it as a wonderful dessert!

    oven smells hmmmm

    Regina Dizon from Santa Ana, California

    it's an easy, alternative way on what to do with left over Butterfinger candies after Halloween. The kitchen smells good. Moist and good, even without the frosting. i used a Bundt pan and sprinkled chopped Butterfinger candies below the pan and added 1/4 cup of dark rum.

    Janice Blackburn from , Natrona Heights,PA

    I made this cake for my husband's 40th birthday and it was absolutely delicious. It was so easy and unbelievably moist. I iced it with homemade buttercream icing that was a big hit. I will make this again and again. Can't wait til the next party.

    Church Potluck Hit

    Raquel Donaldson from Carlinville, IL

    ...I made this for a church memorial day cookout this past weekend- everyone kept saying they didn't know what kind of cake it was- but told everyone to try it! I have been on a diet for a year and I tried a TINY piece and had to physically restrain myself from eating more! Great and easy recipe!

    moist munchie

    BECKY EMORY from

    the cake was very moist with an occasional bite of butterfinger. I didn't care for as much candy in the cake, but others who don't like butterfinger loved the cake. Overall very good.

    Harmony McCarter from SURPRISE, AZ

    I made this cake for a friend at work in the classic style white frosting. Turned out great and moist. I changed it up and made a layer cake with chocolate frosting and used fresh bananas for garnish as well.. Great and moist again. There is no way to mess this up. Thanks for the recipe.

    Another Recipe Winner!

    SHELLY WARNICK from HUNTSVILLE, AL

    What a super way to use up bananas! I thought I had all the listed ingredients on hand, but not any NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER Candy Bars. So I used some butterschotch chips and chocolate chips in the batter, and then about ¾ cup toffee chips on top of cream cheese frosting. It worked fine. An easy recipe to follow and a very moist and tasty cake. I’ll be sure and buy some Butterfingers to have the next time I make this cake! This cake was easy enough to prepare this morning and ready by the time I wanted to take it to work. We all enjoyed it.

    This cake is super moist and very quick and easy to assemble. We really like it with a cream cheese frosting. For a change I tried a milk chocolate cake mix and that was a big hit too. This is a great potluck pleaser.

    Great icing

    Jane Sweeney from Lake Ozark, MO

    Will definitely make this again. Lots of flavor, and the icing is outstanding. One problem was that the cake pulled away from the sides of the pan. Still a keeper.
