Expert Tips

Bananas that are turning brown and soft are just right for using in recipes like this cake.

Brown bananas? Toss them, unpeeled, in the freezer. They'll be ready when you need them for any recipe using mashed bananas. Simply thaw, peel and mash.

For a change, serve the cake in triangles instead of squares. Cut the cake lengthwise in half and crosswise into fourths; cut squares diagonally in half.

For a room temperature cake, cool about 1 hour, and do not heat frosting before spreading.
