It had great views of the mountains.
A pond, where our husbands caught some fish for dinner.
And my beautiful friend Meghan!
Oh, and I brought some banana cake. It was okay. I wanted to try something new but I like my banana bread way better. If you have a good banana bread/cake recipe, let me know! I love trying out new banana recipes!
Adapted from Baking: From My Home to Yours
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick), at room temperature
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup sugar
1 cup Splenda
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs, at room temperature
4 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup fat free sour cream
Heat oven to 350.
Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl. Set aside.
Beat the butter, sugar, and Slpenda on medium for 1 minute. Mix in vanilla. Add eggs, one at time, beating for 1 minute after each addition. Next, mix the in applesauce. The batter will look curdled--it's okay! Mix in bananas on low.
Add in half of the dry mixture, followed by all of the sour cream, and then mix in the remaining dry mixture.
Pour into a greased bundt and bake for 65-75 minutes. Check after 30 minutes and cover the top with foil if it is getting too brown.
