    HEP MEP's Note:

    This is my most requested cake for birthdays in our family.It came from an old Betty Crocker dessert cookbook published in 1977. (if you use the banana slices before to put a little lemon juice on them so they don't turn brown)

      Wow! I just luv bananas and this cake rocks! So easy too. I baked it in an oblong pan and it cooked in 45 minutes. Along with the sliced banana, I strew the top with pecans, but I guess they could also be added to the cake batter. A winner, Mep.

      Simple and easy to make ... moist and flavourful, too! I used 3 bananas that were hanging out in my freezer just waiting to be used up and canola oil instead of shortening (didn't have any). I know I'll be making this one again. In honour of MEP ... whose sense of humour and no nonsense personality will truly be missed.

      Delicious cake that I will be making often. I prepared it with sadness though remembering MEP until I realized she wouldn't want anyone to feel that way. She will be missed around here.
