Homemade Banana Cake

Homemade Banana Cake

Do you ever get stuck with a bunch of overripe bananas? This happens to us every now and again. We go a little crazy at the grocery store and by a batch of bananas that go ripe too quickly and we find ourselves scrambling to eat them before they go to waste. Some great options are slicing them and freezing them for smoothies, or a classic is making banana bread. Well we have another option for you.
