When your bananas get this ripe, you may think…banana bread or banana muffins. I found a recipe online for Banana Cake, which was really delicious.
|You will need 3 bananas for this recipe. My third
was added to morning ‘smoothie’ before
I had a chance to take its picture!
|I served the Banana Cake with French
Vanilla ice cream and shaved chocolate.
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. butter for greasing pan
2/3 cup sugar
3 ripe bananas
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups white flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
2 Tbsp. Half and Half (or milk)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Liberally grease a 9×13 inch pan with 1 Tbsp. of butter. Peel and mash bananas and set aside. In a large bowl add vegetable oil and slowly add sugar beating after each addition on low with a hand mixer. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each. Beat until slightly fluffy. Set aside. Combine all dry ingredients, including chocolate chips and nuts if you are using, in one bowl stirring until well combined. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mix. Continue beating. Next, add the 2 Tbsp. of cream or milk. Pour mixture into greased 9×13 inch pan and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. I think this cake would also be excellent topped with a cream cheese frosting mixed with 1 cup of coconut.
I froze half of this cake and my husband likes to eat it frozen directly from the freezer. He says it tastes like a banana brownie!
ALL FOR TODAY…UNTIL NEXT TIME
KEEP ON LOVING GENEROUSLY AND ENJOYING EACH AND EVERY MOMENT TO THE FULLEST!
When I’m not in the kitchen I LOVE to play golf.
