Banana Bundt Cake

As you may have already guessed by reading this blog; is that I love to bake. Yet, I never share the really simple recipes that my family and friends love.

For example, this bundt cake is utterly moist and full of banana flavor. It will last forever in the fridge without drying out. I love it warm with a glass of soy milk or cold with a cup of hot coffee.

Despite how much I heart bundt cakes, I have only posted one bundt cake recipe so far. Shame on me. Especially since they always bring a smile to my face.

Every single time I bake a bundt cake I think about my mom and a particular scene from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". My mom loves-loves bundt cakes. To her a bundt cake is "real cake". No fancy icings to hide a bland, dry, and over priced cake. I guess you can say, bundt cakes are the "salt of the earth" cakes.

For me, bundt cake recipes are reliable, honestly delicious, large enough to share and show kindness with a slice. Just like my mom's love.

I love bundt cakes too. And that movie. I've probably seen it a gazillion times... I owed the DVD before I owned a DVD player!

Great job on the cake!

Sometimes simple is best. The bundt cake looks delicious. I have just bought my first bundt pan and so can't wait to give this a go.

Hannah said...

Bundt cakes are definitely comforting, for some reason. This sounds like such a nice cake to curl up on the couch with after a long day... And banana bread/cake is always a crowd-pleaser, too. :)

Ann said...

I have been wanting to make a bundt cake FO-EVAH! I need to buy a pan, that would help. But now I feel totally motivated...why? That damn glaze...

Rachel said...

I love your blog. I just noticed the blogs of note for the first time today and there I found your blog. I've been looking for my banana nut cake recipe that was in the old Betty Crocker book and disappointed that I couldn't find it. I'm excited to try yours. Looks much better anyway! Your mother is right. There's nothing like a bundt cake!
