I decided to make the cake for Easter, even though traditionally it is made as an accompaniment to Thanksgiving. As any chef/baker will tell you, when starting any recipe, make sure you have all of your ingredients set out or measured out in your mise en place.
Of course, I had to go back out and get regular flour- usually we have it in the apartment so I didn’t think to check. Rule #1: Always double-check your ingredients so you don’t have to go back out before you start.
This recipe is quite easy to put together and make. It should take no more than half an hour to mix everything and get it ready to go into the oven. I’d never used the amount of honey the recipe called for- 3/4 of a cup in the batter itself- and was surprised at how much it made the batter smell like bananas.
Once it was cool, I helped myself to a slice. It had a very sweet taste to it, but was light at the same time, and so delicious. This is right for any holiday or just something to have with afternoon tea. I’m looking forward to making this again.
