Banana and Peanut Cake

June 29, 2013

Rear View 

When I drove in the Caribbean I was consistently looking out of my rear view mirror in fear that I would knock something over.  To master those roads is a sport in itself and I am sure one day I will get the hang of it.  This cake reminds me of the incident I had in Barbados, it involved a monkey, a fig tree and my bad driving.  Well looking on the bright side I made this delicious cake. 🙂

This recipe was adapted from Good Housekeeping Magazine (Nov, 2012).
