TWD: Lots of Ways Banana Cake

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

If ifs and buts were candy and nuts, we’d all have a wonderful Christmas.

Coulda shoulda woulda…

All of the above could be the tagline to my life lately.  But we won’t go into that.  Let’s just say that when I saw this recipe in the book eons ago I had completely different plans for it.  Flexibility is a virtue, right? 

I “played around” with this one by opting for one layer and skipping all add-ins.  I topped it with chocolate ganache and whipped cream.  Probably the biggest change I made was going gluten free.  I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour.  And, you know what?  Two of the three of use who ate this aren’t trying to be gluten free and we all had seconds.  Take that, wheat flour!

For the full recipe visit: Kimberly at Only Creative Opportunities.  This one is a keeper.

Next week:  chunky chewy blondies.  probably not gluten free.
