“this is an amazing banana cake recipe which i found in a recipe book but tweaked with my own magic..... hope you enjoy :) I think the oil gives the cake a unmissable moistness and the sour cream helps bring out the flavour of the bananas. As for the cinnamon... i just love the taste of the cinnamon undertones to the richness of the vanilla-banana combination.... its gooooooddd. (how cheesy am i, .....lol)”
