This, my friends, is a sign of a Saturday well spent.
We had friends over to celebrate a birthday after kiddos were in bed. The birthday girl requested a fruity cake and I knew just what to make to satisfy that craving. Even better, it’s dairy free!!!
This recipe makes the most moist, delicious, banana-y cake I’ve ever eaten. Everybody that had some wanted it for their own birthday celebrations and declared it the best cake ever. Then I was told I needed to share it with all of you My husband, who is not much of a sweets kind of guy, ate two hunks of it.
I’d like to thank a friend of mine for sharing the recipe on which this recipe was based!
This recipe is a win, I hope you enjoy it!
