For not having much of an appetite, we’re still eating.  The colds from hell linger on.  And on.  And on.  And on.

Tonight was the pork chops from yesterday, a sweet potato and a red potato, roasted with garlic and rosemary and sage from the garden.  And frozen peas because they were there.

The chop was perfectly charred.  It was about all I could taste – until Victor’s dessert.

I could actually smell this baking.

Banana Cake

  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 bananas, mashed

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour bundt pan.

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt.

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla and mix until completely combines. Add banana. Slowly add flour alternately with milk. At end of addition batter should be smooth. Divide between 2 pans.

Bake about 40-45 minutes or until tester comes out clean.

I made a chocolate ganache for the top and then covered it with unsweetened coconut.
