Help..looking for 'sponge-like' banana cake recipe

sugarplum1, Aug 15, 1:59am
Does anyone have a recipe for a banana cake that is nice and fluffy/like a sponge? My banana cakes always come out too dense in texture. Not sure what I'm doing wrong as other cakes turn out ok. Your help would be very appreciated.

I think the secret is to cook it in a shallow tin. Cut it in half then put the two halves together with cream and sliced banana. Yum.
