TWD: Classic Banana Bundt Cake

Thank you, Food Librarian, for choosing this cake! I, too, love a good Bundt cake. I got my bundt pan at a church yard sale about 4 years ago, and I don't know how I lived without it. If you don't have one at your house, you need a bundt pan. They come in a wide variety of patterns, but I have the basic bundt. I'm happy with it! You can also find bundt pans at a variety of price points. I've seen them for less than $10.00, but all the way up to about $32.00. Spend whatever you like, but definitely pick up a bundt pan the next time you're at Wal-Mart! They're my absolute favorite type of cake to make, so when I saw this one on the TWD schedule for August, I knew there would be no way I'd miss it!
The recipe for this delicious, beautiful Bundt couldn't be easier. You just need flour, baking soda, salt, butter, sugar, vanilla, eggs, bananas, and either sour cream or plain yogurt. I'd say that anyone who cooks or bakes even semi-regularly has these items on hand. I had fat-free plain yogurt, so that's what I used, and it turned out great. I also added in some mini-chocolate chips. It just seemed like the right thing to do!My favorite part of baking anything is having leftover batter to eat. I don't fear raw eggs in my batter...I eat batter anytime I bake, and I bake a lot. I've never had any ill effects, so I'll keep on keepin' on. Anyway, this batter was delicious. I knew that the baked cake would be beyond delicious, so I made plans to get it out of the house. Once it had cooled, I made a simple glaze with milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla, drizzled it on, cut a slice for Mama, and sent it to CUB with David. There was no way I was going to let that Banana Bundt Beauty sit in my kitchen and tempt me! If you've got the ingredients on hand, and you probably do, why don't you go and visit The Food Librarian and get the recipe?


  1. This was absolutely delicious! Nicely done!

    Welcome to the group!

  2. Your cake looks so pretty with the glaze drizzled on it. Getting it out of the house was the right thing to do! Adding chocolate chips was also the right thing to do!

  3. Ooops, I forgot you asked about a piping tip. I used an 826 star tip. It's big and you end up with a lot of frosting on the cupcake, but I don't think that's a bad thing!

  4. Yours looks SOOO great with the drizzle!!!! We loved this cake, soooo good!

  5. I'm not afraid of batter either!! It begs to be eaten anytime I mix something up. Chocolate chips were a tasty idea! Nice job.

  6. Wow your glaze looks absolutely perfect! Mine was a bit runnier, I should have thickened it up a bit. Oh well LOL still tasted awesome!

    Did you have a smudge on your lens? I see a blurry spot in the middle of your pictures. I've done that before, many times LOL!

  7. Welcome to the TWD!
    Your cake looks delicious!
    Beautiful with the drizzle on top.
    Nicely done!

  8. Beautiful glaze, the cake looks outstanding! The batter for this cake was extra good, I also licked the spoon.

  9. Beautiful cake with that drizzle. And, yes, the batter was good raw, but even better baked.

    Great job.
