This cake was recently served to me at a friends house. This gentleman is an excellent cook and did own a catering business. He invited me to come see his beautiful tulips in bloom. As we observed their beauty we had a slice of this cake. It is awesome with taste, texture,and moisture, perfect. Many banana breads are simply too dry or too moist for me but this one is in perfect balance. It was very attractive with fresh strawberries served on the side. You'll be proud of the results. I promise you will ENJOY this awesome cake !!
