THE Banana Cake

Kitchen Tip
Never waste any bananas, even if they turn black. Just put them in a plastic bag and freeze them. 

Those frozen bananas came in very handy today when I wanted to have a sweet snack around for the weekend - Banana Cake.

I have had this cake's recipe since the 70's and I have no idea who gave it to me (was it you mom?). But it is simple, it works and all yours to try. Simply mix all ingredients and bake. You can also throw in nuts or chocolate chips at the end before baking.

2.25 cups flour                                    0.5 cup vegetable oil                  
1.25 cups sugar                                   1.5 cups mashed bananas
2.5 tsp baking powder                         2 eggs
0.5 tsp baking soda                             1.5 tsp vanilla
0.5 tsp salt                                          Nuts and/or chocolate chips optional

Bake in 375 oven for 40 - 45 minutes. Feed leftovers (if any) to birds, they love it!
