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.

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.
