My Granny was a truly wonderful lady. Amongst her many lovely attributes was a skilled hand at baking. While her baking was fairly simple compared to today’s diverse varieties of sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, etc., it was honest and delicious. I will always remember her stressing the importance of using ripe bananas and sour-ing the milk with a bit of vinegar when making banana cake. I would beg her to make it on every single visit but she absolutely wouldn’t unless she had sufficiently ripe bananas, singing “Yes I have no bananas, I have no bananas today!”. Catchy tune eh?
The recipe below falls a bit short from my Granny’s dairy, gluten, and white sugar-containing banana cake. This one is still very yummy but in a 2013-gluten-free-[hipster]-Paleo-[Crossfit] way.
