Variation: Low-fat Banana Currant Layer Cake

Photo and cake by msbreez, Premium Member © Sarah Phillips

Most banana cakes are baked in a loaf pan, but this is such a favorite at my house that it often makes an appearance at family celebrations dressed up as a layer cake. If you have the time, the cake tastes even better if the layers are wrapped and refrigerated overnight so the flavors get a chance to mix and mellow! I love to fill and frost this cake with Seven Minute Mocha Frosting - banana and mocha are such great flavors together!

The original request was a banana cake with monkeys jumping on top. Well, lots of procrastination happened and he got a cake that sort of resembled a bunch of bananas. lol It was Sarah's Banana Currant Layer Cake, without currants, instead with bittersweet choc chips and Tami's or Perfect Buttercream....Anyway, the cake is fabulous Sarah!"
