I posted 'but 5 months ago. I was looking to duplicate the banana cake that my mom made. As she took her recipe to the grave(as she swore she always would) I wanted to make it for my family as a surprise, and the family here at SE really stepped up to the plate. My daughter and I spent the better part of the winter baking banana based recipes. We found one that is almost exactly my mom's, the color of the batter is just off. I would love to tell y'all who this recipe belongs to, but, I'd rather save face and thank all who posted.You are the best!
