This week's Tuesdays with Dorie pick is the Lots-of-Ways Banana Cake. I really like this cake. And maybe the best part about baking it (aside from the great flexibility in ingredients) is the surprising sound--a most satisfying crackle--that the batter makes when I stir in the toasted coconut.
I've made this cake twice. The first time was for a snack for choir rehearsal participants. Because they were going to be picking up pieces with their fingers, I made the layers plain, sprinkled on some powdered sugar, and cut the cake into cookie-sized pieces.
The second time I made the cake for a a birthday celebration so I frosted it with a chocolate whipped cream frosting and slivered some chocolate on top.
The next time I make it I'm going to go for the sundae version, cutting up the cake in cubes, tossing them with bananas and topping with vanilla ice cream (and maybe even some chocolate). Yum!
Thanks Kimberly, of Only Creative Opportunities for this pick!
