Banana Cake Recipe

Today at STYLEanthropy, we dine in style with this Banana Cake Recipe. Banana Cake is an all-time comfort food in my home and it is such a breeze to make! If you’re looking for something to make out of those overripe bananas sitting in your kitchen, banana cake is the answer! Like my mom, I make this cake all the time. I especially love the outer part. I love nibbling on that crusty-like texture. I don’t like nuts in my cake but I added it here as an option, in case you’re a nut-lover. I prefer mine with raisins. And of course, this is perfect with coffee.

Let’s get cooking!
