Banana Nut Cake

Banana Nut Cake is a favorite of my dad’s, and since it’s his birthday today, I decided to make him one.  I love to bake something for a loved one on their birthday to let them know I’m thinking about them…and who doesn’t like a gift they can eat?!

This cake was a cinch to make, so make one for yourself or someone who loves bananas!

It tasted just like Mamaw’s, so I’m gonna say it’s a success!

Here’s the recipe for ya!  Happy baking. :)
