TWD Banana Bundt Cake ...and all the catching up !


Finally back !! I missed you all so much ! I'm very happy to be able to visit you again and I've a lot to catch up as you worked a lot on the last month !!
This week it was Mary of The Food Librarian who chose this very simple and tasty recipe.
I used a bit more bananas so I added an extra egg, the pan I own ( a silicone rose shaped pan) looked a bit too full so , luckily, I made an extra little cake for Cristina, but I must admit I didn't mesure it before. Unfortunately the rose part stuck to the pan so some 'mice' had it.
I glazed only half cake but I liked both....
Thanks Mary I don't know about you but I have lots of bananas in my freezer !!!

Now , you wouldn't imagine I could stay a whole month without baking (I even brought my sourdough along !) so here are the Tribute to Katherine Hepburn Brownies chosen by Lisa of Surviving Oz (made twice in the heat wave !!)


Denise of Chez Us picked Brioche Plum Tart and we really loved it very very much ! I used sourdough instead of yeast, we made it three times but Anita liked it better with peaches !





Then Susan of Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy selected Raspberry Blanc-Manger and we liked it too but I made it with nectarines and I will try it again sicilian style (using almond milk , corn flour and no cream ).



It will take me some time to visit you all but I can't wait !!! CIAO !

Welcome back! Not only did you bake along while you were gone, you made some recipes more than once! Everything is beautiful, especially those tarts. I'm very interested in the Sicilian style blanc manger, it sounds delicious and a little less decadent.

You'll be caught up on BBA in no time, I'm sure. I'll add your posts to the roundups when I see them.

WOW! That's a lot of baking you've been doing! Kudos for baking Dorie's treats multiple times.
The banana bundt cake looks really moist and I LOVE all the glaze on it!
I'd like a bite of the brownie!
The peach brioche tart looks amazing!
And your blanc-manger looks wonderful, the Sicilian version sounds tasty too!

Peggy said...

oh I am impressed. I"ve been such a slacker lately and because of my upcoming trip I asked for a break. I would choose your blanc manger - it looks so delicious. Your brioche looks good too - you sliced your plums just like I did!! Great job on all.
