1977 my husband an I went on our very first vacation. We went to couples in Jamaica in September. Needless to say it rained for 10 days. We were in our 20's nd learnd that unlimited drinks grow old very fast. So we turned our attention to cooking. Enjoy.
1.Mix together sugar, vegetable oil, pecans, flour, and bananas in a 13 x 9 inch pan. Stir in the eggs, pineapple (with juice), ginger, vanilla, salt and baking soda. Mix well. Do not mash the bananas.
Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 60 minutes or until cake tests done.
Serve with Jamaican whipped cream
Whip the cream in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. When it starts to thicken, add the sugar, vanilla, and rum. Continue to whip until it forms stiff peaks. Fold in pralines. Serve cold.
