Would it be ok to use a GF cake mix and should I follow same directions as indicated above? OR directions on GF cake mix?

So light and delicious. Very available ingredients. Finally used all my frozen bananas in my freezer. Family loved it. I would definitely make it again and again.

Absolutely delicious! This is a cake served for company for sure! I added some chocolate chips cause I figure chocolate and banana mix well, and yes they do. Thank you for the recipe! :)

Made this cake before. It's great. I sometimes make it with another flavor cake mix. It's a great dessert for company.

This is the best cake I've ever had! I wont make it very often, only because I'd eat the whole thing all by myself.
