Whenever bananas go bad in my house I usually make banana bread. It’s easy and delicious…only problem is it only last like an hour and then it’s gobbled up! This time when I had 3 over ripe bananas I made a banana cake. YUM! I’m not a huge cake eater…don’t get me wrong I like cake, but I don’t really like the store bought cakes that are served at birthday parties with 2 inches worth of frosting. ( And are my kids the only ones that just get the 2 inches of frosting and then leave the cake?!) I like these kind of cakes. Cakes that are a little more fancy than just chocolate or vanilla.
It has bananas in it, that makes it healthy right?!
So next time you have some bananas that are past their prime, give this recipe a try!
