I made the banana cake of my needs this weekend, a banana cake so like minded I needed to present half of it away as a result of I knew I would eat it all.

What made it so like minded? It turned into a homey, cosy, PTA bake sale more or less cake; there turned into nothing fussy about it, no caramelized bananas between the layers or Marzipan bananas dancing all over the cease. You want minded combine a bunch of moist stuff, add a bunch of dry stuff, put it in a pan, bake it, wintry it, top it with frosting and as well you’re executed. And the resulting cake is every bit as gratifying as a more elaborate banana cake; most possible far more gratifying for the reason that flavors are so pure and comforting.

I learned the recipe the advance most folks ranking recipes in this present day and age, a random search on-line. This is what I stumbled upon: the banana cake from Clementine Bakery as printed within the L.A. Cases.

I don’t know one thing concerning the Clementine Bakery nonetheless after some rudimentary analysis I leer it’s in California (duh, it turned into within the L.A. Cases) and one of my Twitter followers @savour talked about, upon reading I turned into making this cake: “Clementine bakery is awesome. Awesomely awesome.”

After tasting this cake, I want to concur: Clementine Bakery IS awesomely awesome, no longer less than in the case of banana cake.

The cake calls for pastry flour which, consistent with the article, affords the cake “a noticeably gentle crumb.”

On the full I’m suspicious of the utilization of a forte ingredient bask in this–I turned into very shut to the utilization of like minded in vogue flour–nonetheless I concept “what the hay” and bought the ranking and I’m contented I did. It does build a distinction; the raw flour is coarser than ordinary flour and the final result makes the cake far more fascinating than a in vogue banana cake.

One final thunder: this cake has a amount of sugar in it. 2 2/3 cups of sugar: so whenever you don’t bask in your muffins severely sweet, this could occasionally maybe maybe no longer be the cake for you. But for all people else? Right here’s how you build it.
