Keep Calm, Be Honest and Eat Cake

Moist Banana Cake

Always tell the truth, keep to your promises, work hard, be kind, do your best, be grateful, don’t whine, stay calm, be smart and be proud of yourself. All of us grew up with most of these words constantly told to us by our parents, loved ones, caretakers and educators. Now as a mother, these values are taught to my children.

Of course there are good and bad hair pulling days but it all does work out after one-to-one talks and reassurance of love at the end.

Good behaviour in the following days then ensues and with good spirit there is always cake!

The good old Banana Cake is a sure hit every time and is the family’s favourite. It’s really easy to bake at home too! Here is a step-by-step photo guide. Recipe is included at the bottom of the post.

This recipe will yield you a beautiful moist Banana Cake that is so delicious to eat!

Did you know about this brand of fresh milk in town? It is by Greenfields whose whipping cream I have been using for years. I used their fresh milk for this Banana Cake. My children love their Chocolate Malt too!
