Vietnamese Banana Cake
Luke Nguyen's book The songs of Sapa:stories and recipes from vietnam. My eldest son wanted to make something, so I asked him to help to make it. He was feeling very grown up when I asked him to slice some bananas for me using a bread knife.
The cake turned out well, although it wasnt very cake like, but quite delicious .Unfortunately my little sous chef didnt quite like it. I used half the recipe cause there were too many eggs. I used small bananas, about 6 inch bananas.
