I was trying to decide what do instead of school work when a fruit fly came whizzing by my face and I thought AHA! I am going to use up all those overripe bananas sitting on my kitchen island and bake something. I love to bake, but really haven't done much over the past few years except on holidays. Time contraints and concerns over weight gain have caused me to cut back on an activity I really enjoy.
I haven't made a banana cake in probably a few years, so the decision was made. Now I had to find the recipe. I grabbed my bag of recipes and starting sorting through them. Not only am I procrastinator but also somewhat disorderly in certain areas of my life.
It took more than one pass through this mess to actually find it. I was starting to get upset because this was the one from my Mom. It's very old. I know I could easily find another recipe, however this is the one I always make.
I finally found it, and it was looking pretty worse for wear.
And here is the cake after frosting!
This recipe is for hard core cake lovers. If you are looking for anything remotely healthy then you should pass on this recipe. Check out the amount of shortening (aka grease) and butter in this cake. That's what makes it taste so good!
