myFresha-licious: Banana Cake

Banana Cake

One of my favorite simple cake is banana cake 🙂 and I’m glad that my husband did like the banana cake I baked for him yesterday.  The truth is, he asked me to bake another and experiment on adding raisins and cinnamon powder next time which I was planning to except for the raisins.  But let’s see, I might try that 🙂

When you make banana cake, the most important thing is to use over ripe bananas so that you do not need to make use of artificial flavorings.

1.  Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside.
