The Best Banana Cake

Trish, over at Light. Sweet. Crude. told me she had a terrific banana cake recipe a couple of weeks ago when I had some over-ripe bananas to use up. I used those ones in a different recipe but hid some of the next lot in the back of the fridge, a necessary measure in a house with two little monkeys, in order to give Trish's recipe a try.


All I can say is: make this recipe! It was delicious. It was moist. It was loudly and widely complimented. And, next time I'm not going to wait for it to cool down, I'll be eating it warm.


Here's a very bad pic of the cake but you'll have to go check out Trish's blog to get the recipe - it's under the heading 'What's Cooking' way down on the right hand side. I used three large-ish bananas and cooked it in a ring pan for about 45 minutes - delicious!


A personal note: I had a lovely comment from a new reader that I had every intention of responding to but... now I can't find the comment! So, thankyou new reader for reading my blog, I'm glad you enjoyed it and hope you come back and comment again so I can respond properly and come visit you!

This looks like a good recipe however... I don't like anything banana flavored! Can you believe it?!!? Pretty cake, though. :)

I fed this cake to my brother in law who said he wasn't much of a banana fan. He loved it. So maybe this will be the exception to your rule?

Thanks for the link back to me! I've got another recipe to post (best ever coconut cup cakes) but I need to troll through my archives and find the photo I took last time I made them.

Ah-ha! You've done this to me again RDM! I have so many over-ripe bananas stock-piling in my freezer I have been looking for a great banana cake to make to indulge in. I might have just found it. Thank-you.

Hello, Red Dirt Mummy, I suspect I may the new reader. Dropped by again...and you lead with a recipe that may do away with the ovvvverripe bananas that are calling for my attention. Know what I'm doing when I get back from shopping tomorrow!?!

Hi Karen Beth, I found it very banana-ry but be sure and read what Trish has to say in the comment after yours.

You're welcome Trish. I'm looking forward to the next recipe already.

Give it a try, Melody. We like so many of the same things that I'm sure you'll LOVE this one.

YAY! Hi Mountainmama, it was you indeed and I felt terrible when I couldn't re-find your message to respond, sorry. I'm so glad you found me and I will be across for a nice long visit shortly. Glad I could be of help with the banana situation.
