TWD: Lots of Ways of Banana Cake

I've never been known for being patient. So this week's Tuesdays With Dorie pick, Lots of Ways of Banana Cake (chosen by Kimberly of Only Creative Opportunities), was a bit of a challenge for me.

When I want to bake something, I want to bake it now. Banana cake requires waiting for bananas to over-ripen. I don't like baking according to the whims of produce. So after four days of waiting for my bananas to show their spots, I was thrilled to finally make this cake tonight after work.

It was well worth the wait. This cake is light and moist with an irresistible banana-coconut flavour. The added texture of the toasted coconut, present in every bite, elevates the dish for me. It's not often that I go back for seconds of a banana bread (or cake), but I made an exception for Lots of Ways of Banana Cake.

For the recipe, visit Kimberly's blog.

It looks perfect Kait. Especially with that dollop of frosting on top.

Worth the wait - I agree! I buy bananas, let them get black and throw them in the freezer. I too am impatient - but they're there when you need them. What a great slice of cake - it's a winner!

I think if you throw bananas in the freezer, they ripen to bakeability overnight. Your cake looks delicious!

Next time you get impatient put the banana in a brown bag with an apple or tomato and close. 24 hours = ripe banana.

I get impatient too. CAke looks great.
