Banana Nut Cake

Here’s another great banana cake that’s easy to make and delish to eat!  I’m always looking for new banana recipes since I seem to always have left over bananas.  I think I buy an over abundance of bananas to make sure I have enough for my banana bread, besides, I can always use left-over bananas for muffins, cakes, pudding and any new banana recipe I may come across. You will not be disappointed in this cake, it’s a really moist and packed full of banana flavor, and it’s pretty simple to make.  I also love the cream cheese glaze on top of the cake!  Enjoy!
