Mum’s Banana Cake – Best Ever

Mum’s Banana Cake, BEST EVER!

“This cake is dark like Denzel, rich like Oprah, dense like Kanye & moister than grandma’s panties at a Tom Jones concert” – Rolling Stone Magazine stockist Barry 

Besides being known for knocking out some mean bikies, my Mum is also known for knocking out some mean cakes. This one is always a knockout. My Mum’s best ever banana cake! One of the best parts of my childhood it never disappoints.

I would not have a clue how long this cake lasts for in the fridge, because it always disappears after being cut. Served just with whipped cream is the way to go or, caramelise a banana and top with a good drizzle of cajeta (mexican caramel) or duche de leche (Spanish caramel)

This mix is for one cake. It usually gets doubled. Dont even try to triple or quadruple it, because it just doesn’t turn out right for some reason
