“This is how I use those leftover black bananas. Sometimes I use the little tiny bananas because they have such an intense flavour. When I'm busy I freeze the bananas just for this cake.

  9. *We find this cake sweet, so I usually just sprinkle icing sugar on top and serve it warm with vanilla bean ice cream.
  10. It's also nice with vanilla or chocolate buttercream frosting.
  11. If making cupcakes, bake for 15 - 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
