The Riper the Bananas—

The quicker the scramble to make something with them before they turn completely to mush.

My original plan was to make my orange chocolate chip banana bread but I blinked and my bananas were already almost too ripe!

It’s right before the holidays so I’ve been in a “clean out the pantry” state of mind and so, not having the ingredients for the orange chocolate chip recipe—and not wanting to just make banana bread—I decided to bake up a delicious Banana Pound Cake!

This banana pound cake is super moist. It’s sweeter and more buttery than plain ol’ banana bread.

The next time you find yourself with a batch of dark, ripe bananas—do yourself a favor, bake a cake!

How To Make Banana Pound Cake:

Step one—Preheat oven to 375°

Step two—Prepare Bundt pan: brush pan with canola oil, coating all sides, nooks, and crannies. Then, coat pan with layer of sugar.

The easiest way to do this is to add about 1/2 cup sugar to pan, cover it with plastic wrap, and shake to coat. You want a uniform layer of sugar.

Step three—Add banana, sugar, butter, vanilla, and sour cream to a large mixing bowl; stir. Then, whisk in eggs, adding them one at a time.

Step four—In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, and salt together.

Step five—Stir banana mixture into flour mix; pour into prepared pan.

Step six—Bake at 375° for 30 minutes then, lower temperature to 350° and bake for an additional 30 minutes.
