Best Banana Bundt Cake


This banana cake recipe from Dorie Greenspan has received many good ratings and I've bookmarked this recipe  after seeing Ann's post.   This banana cake is indeed very moist, bursting with banana flavour and aroma.  I tossed in  some choc bits and I must say that it added more oomph to the cake.   True to its name, it's the Best Banana Bundt Cake that I've ever made.  Will definitely be making this again in the future.

    1. Ha, ha, I'm amused when you say that Marion likes to eat bananas. I guess you've to tell her that you need to reserve this for a banana cake.

  4. With that amount of butter and bananas, I am not surprised this banana bundt cake tastes super. It has a perfectly dense and moist texture.
    Have a wonderful week, Cheah!

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
