Ba ba ba ba banana ba ba ba ba banana… Couldn’t find a proper minion gif to feature in this post but boy, does it smells like banana in our home right now!! Butterscotch and banana to be more accurate, and that’s a wonderful smell to welcome your hubby who just returned from a 18K run! (He sure deserves a piece or two 😉 )
When it comes to over ripe bananas, my favourite thing to do with them has been chopping them up and freezing for use in smoothies but I’ve just come up with the second favourite which is a super easy pound cake! Pound cakes traditionally contains the same ration of the 4 main ingredients: flour, butter, eggs and sugar. In this recipe I did however not use sugar but substituted it with the bananas and added butterscotch chips as the 5th main ingredient.
It’s a super simple and versatile recipe using a 1:1:1:1:1 ratio by weight. The banana gives the cake aromatic flavour, moisture and little sweetness that pairs wonderfully with butterscotch chips as well as other flavours such as peanut butter chips or chocolate chips.
Should you decide to try this recipe, please let me know how it turned out! I’m also very excited to see pictures and hear of variations you make from this. And remember – sharing is caring – tag bakinginpink in Instagram and so I can like and repost your pictures.
