hand written on fancy journal paper in curly letters by a long lost
friend. it made this delicious sticky sweet cake with a velvety crump
and no need for frosting. it was lost in the maelstrom of the last 3
years, along with everything else we own except for a couple of
suitcases of clothes and our recently aquired laptops.
the food bank we frequent seems to be overrun with bananas lately. and
last week i made a banana cake from an online recipe. it sucked, hard.
well, it was totally edible but it was not the life changing event of
the old banana cake. I got another bunch of food bank bananas today,
on the verge of black banana cake/bread goodness, and i need another
recipe. so dear internet friends, send me your best banana recipe and
help me restart my recipe collection.
The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all of your time.
