B~A~N~A~N~A~S

Bananas are a staple in our house.  Well, that and peanut butter...  MMMM...bananas and peanut butter...
Sorry.  Homer moment.

This yummy banana cake was a hit in our house and I'm sure it will be in yours as well given you and your family like bananas.
not pictured:  vanilla frosting
What you'll need for the cake:

1 ½ cups sugar
1/22 cup shortening
1 cup very ripe, browning bananas, mashed
2 eggs
1 ½ flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp milk
½ apple cider
1 container of vanilla frosting

1.)  Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Mix sugar, shortening, and bananas until well blended. 
In a separate small bowl, combine milk and apple cider.  Add eggs, flour, baking soda, and milk mixture to banana mixture.  Blend well.
2.)  Grease two 8 inch pie tins.  Pour mixture evenly into the tins. 
Bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool for about 10 minutes.
3.)  Place one cake onto a cake platter. 
Frost over top of the single cake.  Then place second cake on top. 
Frost evenly around top and sides of cake.
I know I said in the last post, this one would be broccoli cassarole but silly me forgot to take pictures when I made it.  Oops!  Brain fart!  It's on the list of things to make soon.

I haven't decided yet what the next post will be but I can prmise it will be something delicious and basically effortless.

  6. Ok, I had to follow the food blog too. I'm glad I didn't throw out my overly ripe bananas this morning after all. I demand, come May 1st, that you link up some of your recipes in my Concours d'Cusine.

    Seriously.

    If you don't, I'll do it for you and feign ignorance.
