Beautiful, Maryann! Can you send a slice this-a-way??? Can practically taste it!

Did you have to double the recipe or is this just one batch that fit in that pan?


Re: Sugarbrown's Mama's Mama's Banana Cake - Mare749 - 09-02-2007

Thanks Linda, that was just one recipe. The pan probably could have held a bit more, but a double recipe would have been too much. It did turn out nice. That's only the second time I've used that pan and as long as I spray it with cooking spray with flour, it comes out fine.

I have that pan, too, and you almost have to use the "spray" in it -- far too many nooks and crannies! It is a fairly large pan -- and even heavier!!! -- that's why I asked if you doubled the recipe or not. Nice to know. Marked the recipe with this info! Thanks!

oh my, what a gorgeous cake, Maryann!! Between how great it looks and the way it tastes (have made this one), no wonder it was all gone!!

Thanks Jean. I'm bringing this up to the top so Billy sees it, since he talks about this cake a lot.

Oh my LORD, Maryann!

I have NEVER seen that cake look so good! lol

I'm just too embarrassed to admit I have never seen the design of that cake pan...Is there a name for it?

How lovely! I'll have to show my Mom for sure.

Thanks for posting that. I think it's time to drag some bananas out of the freezer and make it again.. yikes

If its by Nordic Ware its called Chrysanthemum. I got one from my mother a few years ago for my birthday. Lovely pan and one of my faves from Nordic Ware.


Re: Sugarbrown's Mama's Mama's Banana Cake - Mare749 - 09-07-2007

Laura is right about the name. Nordicware makes some others as well. You can look at them on cooking.com. I'm not a great baker (yet) so I was just thrilled with how pretty my cake turned out.

Nifty little tip for anyone who is interested. I saw a show a while back with Sandra Lee. She took a small bouquet of flowers (can't remember if they were silk or real) and placed them in the center of the cake. It was so pretty and would make such a nice gift, too.

Sugarbrown, give your mom a big hug from me and thank her for saving this recipe.
