Best Homemade Banana Cake Recipe

In honor of the upcoming holiday, this week’s post is going to be all about love. I am not talking about the traditional Valentine’s Day love, but a love so great that it could not possibly fit into a 24 hour period. It is a powerful love. It is an intoxicating love. It is a love so consuming that when you are in its presence, nothing else matters. I am talking about my love for banana cake. No…not banana bread and not a banana muffin – just pure, delicious, lick the pan it’s so good, banana cake. It is truly something special. Unlike a lot of guys in my life, this cake has never let me down. So get ready, I am going to share my love.

Just found this old video and I cried laughing because…
1. I still wear 99.9% black
2. I still do handstands at home
3. I’m teaching free food photo classes this week!

So it felt appropriate to repost. And also…that video of me doing the “vault” is just too good not to share.

If you haven’t signed up for the live class, check out the link in my bio. May or may not break out a handstand during class. It’s going to be live. So anything is possible! 🙌
