While cake is baking combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan.
Heat till syrupy and add lemon.Allow to cool.
Place one cake on cake plater and prick holes with a fork.
Place half of the sliced bananas on 1st layer & pour 1/2 of syrup over banan’s and cake.
Place 2nd layer on top of 1st prick holes and layer banana’s and use the last of syrup.


Keep in the refridgerator. As it will last longer and stay moist.
