Our kitchen has been turned into a bakery for the past few days.

one was a bit on the dry side. I would have used info's "Exported from
MasterCook" recipe, but I couldn't figure out what "Sugar Twin" meant.
I also made a banana cake using Rhonda's recipe. It was particularly
After sampling each they all went to good non-weigh****cher homes and,
unless they're just being kind, they are being enjoyed by men, women
and children as I write. I almost changed my mind about giving away
Rhonda's cake, but relented when my wife gave me one of those looks

It is a nice recipe(there are a few good recipes in that book).I should
make it again soon - I never keep it at home though :-) I take it into work
where it goes very quickly.
I've entered it in the local show a couple of times - got second prize both
times. Both times it came second to a cake that looked like it had never
been anywhere near a banana (pale yellow in colour). Might try again this
year - it's been a couple of years, perhaps that baker has left the area
