Crazy Banana Cake

So first let me start off on how amazing this cake is.  It is light, moist and with a slight taste of bananas and oh we cannot forget that amazing cream cheese frosting.  I picked up this recipe from Happy Hooligans and I did not change a thing with the recipe it was perfect!  The reason why for this cake being called crazy is because it is cooked at a low temp and the way it cools down.  If you love banana desserts then you need to make this for yourself and if you are into that sharing type of thing make it for your family.  This one is a keeper

  1. When is vanilla added? Instructions are incoherent.

    1. I am sorry about that thank you for the comment. You always want to mix in your vanilla last in any batter

    2. No, you should be adding your vanilla with your eggs. If you're adding it last you risk it not getting properly mixed or overmixing your batter.

  2. Love love love this recipe! Thanks for Posting :)

  3. Love this cake but both times I made I check and looks great but needs little more time and then the middle has fallen is this normal?

  4. Can I use normal milk if I don’t have buttermilk live out of town
