Betty’s Banana Cake

7984-web

Happy Birthday to me with a perfect classic cake – Betty’s Banana Cake – and yes, it’s a sheet cake – always a little jewel.

Everyone loves when they discover a little Bijouxs, you know a real little jewel, that special item with enduring qualities, charm and wonderful craftsmanship. Whether it is great solid maple salad bowl, classic Café de Paris Butter, or a simply delicious cake, like Betty’s Banana Cake, everyone loves to discover a little jewel.

I have been collecting for over 30 years, and Bijouxs is created to share them with you all.

Home and hearth are near and dear to me, and my Bijouxs are the little jewels, from my home to yours. Since it was recently my birthday, I thought the event called for a cake, a perfect time to share the newest little jewel, Betty’s Banana Cake, a new recipe and a little snag.

First the recipe. In my new place of residence, I am beginning to put down roots, just a year, but the seeds of friendship are being planted. This Easter I was lucky to have joined a wonderful family for a feast, home cooked food and lots of laughs – for dessert, the most simple and delicious banana cake, a childhood favorite, right before my eyes. Of course, the cook shared her recipe, and I was set to bake the cake. Except for one thing…

My recent move included a box or two of missing items…where was my 9×13 sheet pan? Never fear, friends at OXO to the rescue sending me a oh-so functional glass baking and storage set – just the thing to bake the perfect sheet cake and more.  The 14-Piece Bake, Serve and Store set is made from thermal shock resistant glass – great for an impatient cook like me – it can go from the freezer straight to the oven or microwave. I like glass for food storage, tossing out the plastic on the last move. So, I was now ready to bake the (my) birthday cake.

Betty’s Banana Cake is so simple and delicious – the truth. This moist cake is a perfect candidate for a simple sheet cake, and topping with true buttercream frosting is well, the icing on the cake. Another great feature of the OXO Glass Bakeware is that it comes with handy storage lids, which means the banana cake will stay fresh and makes it able to hit the road for sharing, if needed.

The beauty of a sheet cake is simplicity. However, you can bake the cake in a larger sheet pan and cut into smaller squares for banana cake bites for a party, or bake in two layer pans for a traditional cake. Anyway you slice it Betty’s Banana Cake is a hit.

I served my birthday cake on my favorite little jewel French Majolica plates. Thank you to Betty for the recipe and OXO for the bakeware – both are little jewels from the kitchen.
