banana cake

Hi, Just made your absolutely delicious banana cake recipe and it rose perfectly, moist and tasty. Everybody loved it. BUT....when I slice it, it crumbles easily. Did I miss something?? I made it according to the rec. so I'm not sure why it crumbles?
Appreciate your help.

From the editor:

Hi Hany,

If you're slicing the cake while it's still warm, this could explain the crumbling. To avoid this, make sure the cake is cooled completely on a cooling rack, then refrigerate for at least an hour, to firm up the texture of the cake.
