Notes

So, I always have banana recipes, My daughters go through spurts of eating bananas non-stop for a couple of weeks and then suddenly won't eat any for a week. I'll post some favorites, but they were a little bored with the normal recipe.

I had some cake recipes I found, but it never quite turned out how I wanted, then after searching the internet I came upon a recipe that used a low oven (275) and then put the newly-baked cake into the freezer.

Amazing. It worked. So, I took my regular recipe with those 2 modifications and was amazed!

So, here it is.
