TWD Classic Banana Bundt Cake

Posted by BAKE-EN at 9:26 AM


Mary of The food librarian chose banana bundt cake as this week's TWD recipe.

There's not to much to say about this cake other than, make it. Make it now. I loved it. The aromatics of it as it bakes are reason enough to pick up bananas and sour cream at the grocery store. If I could capture the smell of this cake in a candle, I would be a millionaire.

Making the cake is very easy. I halved the recipe and it made 6 mini bundt cakes. They baked for 23 minutes, and looked picture perfect right out of the oven.



How you like them apples? I mean, banana cakes:



(Forgive me, clearly Boston is starting to effect me in a negative way... quoting a movie from 1997. Wow, Good Will Hunting is 12 years old; that makes me...)

For fun, I made three different glazes; chocolate, rum and caramel. Caramel was my favorite because I liked the crunch against the soft cake.

Oh, those ARE picture perfect...especially with the glazes. I'm hopeless at decorating cakes, so I always appreciate the fact that the bundt pan does a lot of the decorating for me! :)

Your mini-cakes look fabulous. I like all three icings, but I think I would also prefer the caramel. YUM.
