My Favorite Things: B is for Banana Cake

A few weeks ago, my Dad starting taking bananas home from our vegetable garden. We had some banana plants there which Dad lovingly took care of. 

But, having a vegetable garden is not like buying things from the grocer or supermarket. We can end up with a lot of a particular fruit or vegetable or with just one single piece. In the case of the bananas, we had a LOT! Even after we gave some to our neighbors and friends, we still had quite a lot of bananas to deal

So I decided to find thing I could do with bananas. Among the easiest recipes I found was that of the steamed Banana Cake! I made one as a test item and I failed miserably -- it was edible but not what I expected.

I got it right on the second try though and I haven't looked back since. I try to make a banana cake at least once a week with different variations like using semolina (sooji) instead of flour, or adding nuts for some crunchiness. 

It has become among my favorite things -- banana cake

Darn, this post is making me hungry.

  1. We love Banana Loaf in our house. In fact, we've got a pile of overripe bananas sitting in the kitchen right now, so we'll be making some tonight. Nice post. :)

  2. That sounds so good. I am a banana fanatic. Now I want to have a banana plant.

  3. Perfect for the Letter 'B' and anything made with bananas. Thanks so much for the recipe links and I was especially interested in your substitute for FLOUR as I do not use or eat anything with wheat flour. Thanks for stopping by for my Letter 'B' story.
