    this was agreat easy cake to make--I think next time I would try vanilla yogurt and perhaps add a handful of minichoco chips!! I love the fact that it went together quickly.

    I made this cake quickly before work (and I have to be at work by 6:30 a.m.!). So very easy, moist, wonderful banana flavor. My son had it for breakfast for the next 3 days. I will make this often and not even bother with banana bread! I did use vanilla low fat yogurt for a little extra flavor, but other than that - I followed the recipe exactly.

    My family loved this snack cake! So easy to make! I didn't have yogurt so I used lite sour cream and it turned out great. I also added chocolate chips because I was craving chocolate but would certainly make it without. Yum!

    This was a nice change from banana bread. It was so much easier to make, cooked a lot quicker, and it was so moist! I will definitely be making this again!

    I've made this recipe about five times now. I substituted Fiber One's vanilla yogurt with good results. Also, in addition to making the cake with the bananas, I have substituted grated apple for the banana and in one batch, a cup of pumpkin for the banana. Also added pecans. All cakes came out great and very popular with the family. Oh, and I used Agave syrup rather than sugar. Works great! Thanks for this simple and easy recipe.

    My 7-year old LOVED this cake. We didn't think the cake needed the whipped topping. I also served a little piece to my 11 month old and of course he gobbled it up. :)

    Very moist cake. My kids are saying it is like banana bread, and they are right. I put in a big handful of chocolate chips - although mini chocolate chips would be even better.

    Used Yoplait light banana yogurt for even more flavor. Might add finely chopped toasted pecans or walnuts next time and cook about five minutes more. Mine was a little too moist in the center. Perhaps I'd cut back 1/4 cup in either the banana or the yogurt, too. But definitely good and worth tweaking a bit.

    I like the addition of the cinnamon. My guests loved it and even had seconds. I didn't have a metal pan so I used a glass pan and didn't know how long to cook it. I cooked it for twenty minutes and the toothpick came out dirty so I put it in for an additional wo minutes. The toothpick still came out dirty but I didn't put it back in the oven, and then when I served it it was overcooked so I will just try twenty next time and see if it is more moist.

    Best recipe ever!! I have these cut up and frozen right now. You can pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds or so, and it becomes incredibly moist and tender!

    I really like this recipe. I've made it several times and it's always moist. Yesterday I made it, subbing low fat buttermilk for the yogurt as I didn't have any yogurt in the house - still good. I also added some mini-chocolate chips. Never bother with the topping, it's good on it's own.
