Every time we visited
our grandparents, our grandmother would make this banana cake. She always made
it for my mother's birthday in March when we visited for spring break.
Grandmama had eight grandchildren and every one of us looked forward to a visit
and her cake. I remember watching her do everything by hand. She would have no
part of an electric mixer. A few years ago, I took my parents on a genealogy
trip and while we were in the area, we visited our cousins and my Aunt and Uncle
Carolina. When we arrived, guess what two of my cousins had waiting for us?
Grandmama's Banana Cake, they had worked on all morning, still warm. How
wonderful it was for all of us to be together and still be able to experience a
little bit of our wonderful grandmother. I treasure all the memories of my
childhood with my relatives.
Grandmama's Banana Cake:
3 - 4
layer yellow cake with banana fruit frosting
