How to Make the Best Ever Banana Cake Recipe

When we think of cakes, what comes to mind is chocolate, angel food, and even strawberry. These are all common flavors that have been beloved for years. While banana bread has grown in popularity, banana cake is not one we think often think of.

However, banana cake is a popular dessert in Chinese, Indonesian, and Vietnamese cuisine. It can be prepared as a layer cake or made into muffins or cupcakes.

You can prepare banana cake in a variety of ways by adding bananas, flour, eggs, butter, oil, and sugar to give it its taste and consistency. Other favorable combinations that can be used in the cake are nuts and chocolate.

The dessert can also be topped with icing or glaze, which can include bourbon or other alcoholic beverages. To make the dish appear more attractive and enhance the taste, add garnishes like candy, sliced bananas, or other fruits
