  1. This looks like something I should try! I always have lots of leftover bananas which I do not know what to do with. Must be superdelicious with so much banana in it!

    You can add a topping of icing sugar and lime juice, or just dust with some icing sugar.

Cherry Loaf Cake ~ 樱桃蛋糕

I baked this old-fashioned Cherry Loaf using the Marble Butter cake recipe but adjusted the recipe as I only used three eggs instead of four to fit into the loaf pan.   I remember that when I was little, I was attracted by the red cherries as any other kid and would gingerly take them out and eat them first.    The cake was secondary.  This cake is soft and moist infused with the sweet glace cherries giving it a lovely combination of flavours.
