{TWD} Banana Bundt Cake

It's Tuesday, and you know what that means! Another scrumptious treat due to my baking club Tuesdays with Dorie. This weeks recipe was banana bundt cake chosen by Mary, The Food Librarian. She has gorgeous photos and lots of fun treats on her site. Make sure to check out her blog for the recipe and her scrumptious photos!

I wasn't really sure this was going to turn out well when the entire top layer stuck to the pan. I layered on the butter too. Not sure why that happened. Oh well, more crumbs for my tasters.

We went to a BBQ at the bands singers house and thought this would be fun to take with us. We also took a 2 liter of Verners Ginger Ale and were delighted and surprised to see our hosts has chosen the same thing. What are the odds? :)

When we got there I made the lemony icing. No measuring, just by sight. I made it for the French Yogurt cake so knew it was going to be easy.
I know mine is not as pretty as some of the ones out there but I am sure it was just as delicious. I made a comment out my recipe and our bass players wife, Bethany, though I said Succescipe. It was a successcipe! :)
Awhile later we were talking about the bands new album cover and what should be on it. Our singer Mark thought the cake was so good that a photo of it should be the cover. My husband piped in with "Yes, because nothing says Rock-N-Roll like a half eaten bundt cake!" :) We all got a good laugh out of it. I left an extra piece for Mark (the singer) we said our goodbyes and headed for home. Thanks Dorie and Mary for helping me be a dessert rock star. :)

You know, when it tastes good, nobody cares how it looks! I have to try the lemon glaze, it sounds like such a perfect combination with the banana.

I agree, the looks don't matter nearly as much as the taste!! But it is frustrating when your cake sticks! Glad it was a "successcipe" for you!!! :)

That cake is totally rock and roll! I always say, who cares how it looks as long as it tastes great. Nice job!

...and mmm, Vernors! I think I'm the only person outside of Michigan who likes it.

I'm glad it was a success. Too bad about the sticking issues.

I have to agree with the others - looks are totally secondary to taste when it comes to baked goods. Glad the cake was enjoyed!
