The best Banana Cake recipe!

This is another of my banana recipes which I had promised to post in my last post. I found this recipe in a classic cake book which I treasure a lot. Previously I have posted a banana cake which was eggless , but this time the cake contains eggs. But whatever it may be, I have seen that banana cakes are always dense and moist , the way I love. I feel such cakes makes excellent desserts especially when you serve them with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream with some banana slices on the top. Doesn’t it sound delicious?
