    I left this cake out last night in a domed glass cake platter. The bananas browned down and a lot of the liquid came out of the cake. I was brave enough to eat another slice. It maintained its flavor from the day before. Maybe it should be noted to keep this cake refrigerated.
    If that doesn't keep the bananas from changing color then try spraying or washing the banana rounds with some lemon juice. It won't change the flavor any because this dish is overloaded with sugar.

    Only complaint is it is overly sweet. Almost two cups of sugar and maple syrup going up against one cup of flour. You could probably make it with less sugar without losing any flavor.
    I will make this again but not for a while. My sweet tooth has been heavily sedated.

    If this cake is not cooked through, you'd never be able to tell it. There is so much ooey gooey going on even a little undercooked would be good.
    You have your nerve calling this a cake. It is more like a pie without a crust.
    Very tasty!

    Don't know about this one now, man. Everything was looking great with 20 minutes of bake time left to go. At the end of the bake time the center had fallen but looks a nice golden brown. Pulled it from the oven and noticed that the cake was jiggly like it was not completely baked. The toothpick test came out clean but wet. Gave it another 5 minutes and pulled it to keep it from getting overly brown.

    When I edged the cake with a knife I noticed liquid between the pan and cake. I'm hoping this is just the sugar and syrup that will solid up once it has had a chance to cool off.

    Put the bananas and nuts down in the reverse order. Hope that doesn't make a big difference.

    Have some pics to post. Waiting to pull the cake from the oven to take the main recipe pic. Looks like it is going to turn out well.
