Banana Bread Cake-Style

Banana Bread - Cake Style

This recipe is from the 1982 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Cookbook. That means I’ve been enjoying this banana bread cake since I was 15 years old. It’s a family favorite and the original recipe calls for baking in a loaf pan, but my family has always put it in a regular sized cake pan.
