This cake can be served with butter.
Ice with cream cheese frosting ( Softened cream cheese with icing sugar to taste).

After flour is sifted add a handful of sultanas or raisins to the flour (the flour prevents the fruit from sinking to the bottom of the cake) then mix as per instructions.
Add more spices.
Make as cupcakes.
Banana flavour depends on how ripe your bananas are, what type they are and the eventual size.
Drizzle cake with icing sugar.
Serve with custard as a dessert.
I freeze this cooked cake sliced and un iced.
