¡Banana Cake!

I'm known for breaking rules and suffering the consequences. But this cake involves no suffering :)  It is light, fluffy, flavorful, and very easy to make. No butter, no milk, no eggs! Just moist and sweet banana goodness. It is indeed a cake rather than a banana bread loaf.

Banana Cake:

2-½ cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp cinnamon

3 over-ripe bananas
1-½ cups brown sugar
2 tsps vanilla
2 TBS white vinegar
½ olive oil (or your preference)
1 cup water

Pre-heat oven to 350℉

Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl.

In a large bowl, mash the bananas with sugar and add wet ingredients.

Incorporate dry ingredients into wet.

Pour thick cake batter into 9x9 prepared pan and bake about 45 minutes - checking to see that cake has separated from the sides of the pan and a testing knife comes out clean. Your nose will also tell you when the cake is done. It reaches a peak of sweetness, which you must not allow to burn.

This one is good for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and in between!!!!
