    Cheryl – that looks so yummy. I have this great recipe that starts with a box cake mix, but you’re right, this looks pretty much just as easy. :)

    I like making cakes from scratch. I will use the cake flour for most my scratch cakes. Banana Cake sounds great. My family is not fond of nuts either, But am;-)

    After attempting many recipes that turned out so dense (more like banana bread), this one finally came out moist as ever! Absolutely loved it!!! I used my own browned butter icing w/pecans instead & it was outrageously good! Thanks so much for sharing! :)

    Hey, this recipe looks great! I’d like to make it for a friend, but how many grams or ounces is a box of powdered sugar?
    Thanks!
