Oh my goodness it seems like years and years since we last had banana cake so I so happy to have found this great recipe. The buttermilk makes a such a fabulous difference to this banana cake that even our youngest asked what was different in the taste! OF course I had intended it to be for my book club ladies who will be here tomorrow morning but, after the family got stuck into the cake, it seems I shall have to bake another one, lol!

I'm always fascinated by older recipes, especially ones from the Depression era. If this dates back to the 1930's, then it would definitely fit into that time frame. It sounds delicious and I'd like to give the somewhat modernized version a go. The chocolate filling is really a nice touch, and I think the idea of using Nutella is great as well. I'd also be tempted to try a layer of thinly sliced strawberries in place of the chocolate.

This cake is a bit fancier than regular cake in a loaf pan, and could be served for more formal occasions. I love the addition of the chocolate layer. I might even use a layer of Nutella for this purpose. In any case, it is a nice change from the chocolate chips I usually add to my banana bread.#BestIdeaEver.

This cake is a little bit on the banana bread side so watch out if you are expecting full on cake. Other than that I really enjoyed that the cake was really banana-ie.
