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!
