TWD: Lots of Ways Banana Cake

I will never turn down an opportunity to try a new recipe that uses up brown bananas! It doesn't matter if I buy a hundred bunches or only one bunch, I always have a few that turn too brown to eat. The good news is that it always gives me an excuse to make banana bread (which I LOVE) or, in this case, a great banana cake.

What is so awesome about this cake is that there are a so many different ways to make it and serve it. It calls for buttermilk, but you could substitute sour cream or yogurt. It also has the addition of coconut, but you can leave that out if you choose. It can be served as a single layer cake with powdered sugar or a double layer cake with frosting. Or, you can serve it the best way... As an ice cream sundae! What can I say? We have a lot of homemade ice cream that needs to be eaten! :)




Thanks to Kimberly of Only Creative Opportunities for hosting this week. The recipe can be found at her blog.

Wow a sundae, how awesome! This was my farewell post with TWD after almost two years of baking along. Hope you'll stop by and say goodbye!
