Banana Pound Cake.
This cake is moist and it has a nice sweet jelly like syrup on top, I served it just like the captain ordered: with cream, chocolate sauce and caramel sauce … well in fact it was my nephew pretending to be Wall-e’s Captain and he said that I am Eve so I had to prepare a dessert (totica meaning tortica translation cake) for him because he is the captain and Wall-e too…well, in my opinion he is a dictator
