This banana loaf didn't last very long - which is the sure sign of a good cake.
Speckled with chocolate morsels, the real trick to this cake was the sour cream. A little sour cream goes a long way when it comes to baking certain cakes I find, and this banana cake is a shining example. It held together nicely. It was moist with just the right amount of density. It didn't even have a strong banana flavor. The spices blended perfectly with the batter.
Funny, the entire time this loaf was baking all I could think about was Autumn. There is just something so comforting about banana cake to me. This is the kind of morning cake I could sit, cozily enjoying with a cup of tea with.
I won't get too ahead of myself though. There are still plenty of warmer days ahead...perhaps still enough time to fit in a trip to the beach 😉 ...in any case, if the weather has been cooperating for you as it has been for us here in NY, then this cake will do splendidly.Print
