Years ago, I was wandering around the cookbook section of one bookstore or another and I came across a book called Comfort Foods by Rita M. Harris . Some of the recipes are totally useless to me (you know when you are silly enough to buy a cookbook for a favorite recipe or two?) but one stands out in particular. With a couple of changes, the recipe for Banana Cake is the absolute best that I have ever come across. Bake it in a large pyrex, or two small ones, and it’s banana bread. Bake it in two round cake pans and frost it, and it’s good enough to be a cake.
