      Awesome! We loved it. I did use less sugar in the cream topping just 2 tbs based on another reveiwer. It was perfect, not to sweet and the tang of the lemon added a great touch with the banana flavor. Thanks for posting. :)

      Very Good! I made this as directed in a square pan. It has a nice sweet banana flavor and is very moist...almost too moist. I can't make up my mind about the frosting...You can taste the lemon and feel the texture of the poppy seeds...It's too sweet to my tastes and I like sweet. I prepared it and put it in a tupperware to top each serving. Thanks for a recipe to use up my over ripe bananas! Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
