I have been craving for banana cake for the longest time, so I spent some time in the kitchen last week to bake for myself. Chef Judy Koh has a great recipe, I love it so much that I baked twice within the same week. Sweet, ripe bananas are the key to making a great banana cake. My friends love it, so do give it a try!
