ISO Banana cake recipe

Hi, I have some bananas that are just about ready for cooking and I don't want to do a banana bread. I want to do a light and fluffy cake. Any suggestions? I considered making a genoise with coconut syrup and banana mousse but I still have enough bananas to make a proper cake by itself.
