A long weekend calls for special meals shared with friends and family. I invited some of my closest friends over for lunch today so we can share some good times together and re-energize ourselves before the official start of the week.
I had an idea of what I wanted for my main but I wasn’t sure what to prepare for dessert. It occurred to me that I’ve never made a banana cake before. I don’t enjoy peeling a banana and eating it on its own but I do love banana cake and banana bread.
I wanted to try something different so I thought the cake would go well with a dulce de leche topping. This is a new recipe that I just tried for the first time and the original recipe in Portuguese can be found here (I have made minor adjustments so it’s slightly different).
In case you’re wondering, I’m serving this cake today with vanilla ice-cream.
