Here I am, again, with the dilemma of what to do with ripe bananas. I do not want to freeze them. 

However, I do have the best recipe for you.  Banana Cake. 

I always make this recipe into bread loaves, and today I was in the mood for something new.

Used my bundt mold.

A super simple yet rich-in-flavor banana cake that it will leave you wanting more.

It cooked to perfection within the same amount of time as a loaf and was as moist as ever. 

Not too sweet, fluffy, light, and so tasty.

Perfect for afternoon tea, with whipped cream. 

With your favorite ice cream over it.  The possibilities are endless with this dessert.

A fail-proof recipe that I have been making for the past 30-plus years.
