Banana Cake with Chocolate Mocha Frosting

Oh hey, are you new here? I hope you'll connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, email, or another option over there on the right. 

I'm still licking my wounds from my failed popcorn balls. Thankfully, my SIL, Jill, made a delicious cake that I get to share with you. I love that my family loves to bake as much as I do. And, that they are so good at it!

This banana cake is super moist due to the bananas and sour cream. The mocha frosting is a fudge like frosting; thick, rich and delicious. If you like banana bread you'll love this cake! Perfect with a morning cup of coffee!
