I love that we can no comment on recipes! I made this for home......the only thing I did different from the recipe is that I added about 1 cup of chocolate chips tossed in flour. This is a very delicious, moist cake. Try it, you won't be disappointed. Thanks jaicha for posting it here for all of us to enjoy!

Okay, to date I still haven't found a banana recipe that my hubby approves of! It's sooo frustrating! He is just sooo picky! I will give this one a go, hopefully he passes it so I can stop searching :-)

If I ommit the nuts, would that affect anything? My hubby is not a fan. Anyway, I am excited to try this recipe!!!!!!
