I am starting the new year with this fabulous banana bundt cake recipe.
Not so much for those of you who started the year with a healthy diet. 🙂 This recipe still does contain sugar, so beware. Looking at this image, and I am thinking…wow, that cake is pretty! Isn’t it pretty?
Ok.ok… This bundt cake didn’t just turn out to be real pretty, but it was DELICIOUS too! Oh, my!! Mouth-watering delicious.
It was a cold Sunday, and it was a snow day.
Cold outside. Like 10-15F.
After sledding for about two hours in the cold with the boys, we went home, turned the fireplace on, and I made a cup of hot chocolate. Then I started craving for something sweet. All I had at home was bananas (because I always have bananas) so what one makes with bananas?
Yeah….banana bundt cake. 🙂
I whipped up this easy recipe, baked it for about 35-40 minutes, and just because I have to capture anything and everything that is pretty, I took some photos of this cake. And I am sharing it with you today.
Oh, by the way, if you have been following me for a while, you know that I wrote an eBook on photography back in February of 2016. I am expanding that eBook with dark food photography and some additional fantastic info for you guys soon, so be sure to stay tuned, if you would like to up your photography game.
