The Banana Cake I’ll Always Love


The Banana Cake I’ll Always Love

Back in my college days, I had the best ever banana cake of my life ( I was so lucky). Thanks to Sally’s mother, who gave all her effort to make our tummy happy. Totally obsessed by Sally’s mother baking skill, we all just flooded out Instagram with yum photos of the cake, and of course made her famous. And after so many years, when my daughter is already two years and have developed her sweet tooth quite fast, I felt like giving her the best taste of banana cake like I had in Sally place few years back.
