Cordon Rose Banana Cake


I was obligated to bake a cake for breakfast tomorrow as I have told my hubby not to buy any bread. There was a bunch of bananas hanging in my kitchen. I wanted to bake banana chiffon cake initially, but decided not to repeat my bake. Finally, I refer to my favourite book - The Cake Bible. I found one called "Cordon Rose Banana Cake" page 69.

This is how this cake was described:
"This moist, light, exquisitely tender cake with the rich taste of banana is accented by the lively tang of sour cream and lemon."

It really lived up to its description. The cake is really very very light and moist and I simply really love the taste! I topped it with chocolate ganache and it's HEAVENLY!



Post-Mortem:
I managed to find a blog with this exact same recipe from "THE CAKE BIBLE". You may refer to the recipe here-Eat & Be Happy.

Hi anonymous,
Thanks for your compliment, the recipe was good, which produce a good cake, not me! Hahaha... Sorry, I have no idea about incorporating yogurts into baking. So far, I've not tried any yogurt recipe for cakes. However, I'm sure there are other good blogs where you can get the recipes. Try to google for them.

Grace,
Thanks! You can also spend your time in the kitchen if you want. But it can be quite tiring as I don't get to sit down at all! :p

Wow nothing beats having cake- that cake especially- for breakfast. I love how you've cut the cake into such small even squares :)
