Tuesdays with Dorie: Classic Banana Bunt Cake

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, Mary of The food Librarian chose Dorie's Classic Banana Bunt Cake found on page 190 of Baking: from My Home to Yours

For my first ever (!!) TWD post I was so excited to see a recipe to use all those frozen bananas that I have been storing in my freezer! (can you believe that I have never actually made banana bread? I know!) This recipe was actually very simple, with basic ingredients that most people will have on hand.

mashed 'naners

mixing the batter (only a few dishes required)

right out of the oven (you can smell it right?)


yummy slices!

While baking this, my super-picky hubs came out of his office and said "WHAT are you MAKING??? It smells AMAZING!" and that it did!

I think the end result is really basically like a very moist banana bread recipe, and it is quite delicious. All my co-workers, hubs, and his friend who tried it say it's awesome! i think it would be amazing toasted w/a little butter. yum!

You need to buy the book, bake this banana cake, and then join TWD!
