Handy hints:

  •  Make sure your banana’s are very over ripe! They have so much more flavor when making using them in cooking. I leave mine until the skin is black.
  • Make sure you pass the Baking Powder and  the Bi Carb Soda through a sifter to remove any lumps.

  1. Oh how nice Sam! Those memories are the BEST, and you can pass that recipe on to your kids! My grandma used to be a great baker and made lovely cakes, I wish I had half her skills, lol! We love banana cake and I think it’s a great way to use up those ripe bananas no one will eat otherwise. Last time I made a banana cake it turned out super dry…not sure what went wrong. But now I’ll make your granny’s cake, it looks delicious and not dry at all! Thanks so much for stopping by and linking up at Sweet Inspiration #2 friend!! Have a lovely Sunday!

  2. Sam this looks so yummy. Would you believe that in all my years, and they are plenty, I have never made a banana cake? Is it because the kids always grab the bananas and eat them before they get ripe? Maybe. But now that most of them have left the house maybe, just maybe, I’ll be able to try out this recipe of yours. And you know granny’s recipes are always the best! Thanks for joining us at Sweet Inspiration.

    1. Hahahaha Yes I bet that’s it Mary! At least they are/ have been eating their fruit!!! I do hope you enjoy my Granny’s recipe as much as my family has, when you get to try it!! 🙂

    1. It is a lovely recipe with lots of love in it! I hope you enjoy! Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful weekend 🙂
