We celebrated a birthday yesterday, and C and R helped to make one of our favorite birthday cakes. It's a banana cake with cream cheese frosting, and it is delicious. If you like banana bread, you will love this cake. The recipe comes from The One-Armed Cook by Cynthia Stevens Graubart and Catherine Fliegel. I have posted the recipe before; you can find it by clicking here. If you are looking for a cookbook with easy recipes, The One-Armed Cook is worth buying. The recipes are all geared towards moms who may have a baby on one hip and only one arm to cook with, but they are also great recipes for busy families.
I had fun making this cake with C and R. Sometimes, working with both of them ends up with me getting angry because they are fighting over who gets to do what, but yesterday they were both very good and worked well together.
We decided to make the cake extra special and turn it into a banana split cake by adding fresh strawberries and pineapple on top and ice cream from our favorite creamery on the side. It was delicious!
