Banana Pound Cake.

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






Natural light, so you can see the jelly like syrup



At your service, Sir

4 eggs.

160 gr sugar.

WOW how nice is this banana cake those caramalised bananas on the top (from the bottom of the baked cake) look *drool worthy* and you to hear that you can follow orders from the little cap'n (....er...dictator). You are a good aunt doing all sorts of tasty treats for the relatives. Hope the real dictator isn't getting you down - things are stirring up in part of the world I hear from the T.V. Cheers from Audax and thanks for the great comments you left on my blog.
