Banana Consumption at my house is really hard to predict. When I buy a bunch of bananas, sometimes I don’t get one because they IMMEDIATELY get gobbled up by hungry, ravenous
beasts…aka…my littles. Other times they sit…and sit…and sit…waiting for someone…begging for someone to eat them. But I don’t mind because then I get to make things like this delicious Banana Cake!
EASY BANANA CAKE RECIPE
I was discussing bananas with my friend the other day and she told me I had to give her Easy Banana Cake Recipe a try. So…I bought some bananas and actually hid them from the kids so that they would NOT get eaten before they ripened enough for me to try out this recipe!
This cake did not disappoint! I love having a lot of different options for using up ripe bananas and this one will definitely stay in our recipe rotation.
