Have you ever eaten banana bread and thought to yourself, “The only thing that could make this experience better is icing?” Don’t be ashamed to admit it. I’ve thought that. Of course, my mother, the culinary-wizard, has come up with a solution for this enticing problem with this lovely banana cake. The fluffy cake has the flavor of a luscious banana bread, but with the fluffiness one can only achieve with a cake made from scratch. The thick, creamy icing has a hint of banana in it. I’m told that lemon juice keeps the banana from turning brown in the icing. Clever. Topped with toasted nuts, this delightful sheet cake holds up well over a few days, and, in fact, is even better the next day. If, like me and Bertie, you’re a fan of bananas and cake—this is the perfect desert for you. You see, it’s these little pleasures which make life more beautiful.
