Banana and Almond Cake



It's been a while since I posted a blog entry.  I've been busy these past few months with my studies.  I've been enrolled in an online post graduate degree and busy on weekends studying some lessons.  However, this week, I ate a nice banana cake in our office and said to myself I will make one this week.

I bought some bananas and let it over riped on our counter for three days.  It's best that you used an over ripe banana for this recipe.  You'll see that it taste better and much more flavorful than ripe bananas.  Do not be bothered if the banana has those bruises.  Do not remove it.  Those black spots contain the banana flavor and aroma you need for a nice banana cake.  To add texture to the banana cake, I decided to add some toasted almonds into the recipe.
