Marbled Banana Bundt Cake

I wanted to share this pic of my beautiful Madison sleeping, he has such a purr-fect life!

I walked into the kitchen this morning and took one look at the ripe bananas in the fruit bowl and they were screaming out, Banana Cake! I had some sour cream in the fridge too so I decided to search online for a cake combining both ingredients, it didn’t take me long and I found this yummy recipe on Baking Bites. I love Bundt cakes; they make an everyday plain cake look elegant and perfect for this marbled effect cake! The cake has a light moist texture, from the wonderful combination of the sour cream and bananas, with the chocolate adding even more of a perfect balance of flavours. This is definitely a great cake to whip up when ripe bananas are screaming to be used.

Kittie has a wonderful life - not a care in the world.

You would seriously laugh at the bananas I brought home today. You know how the supermarkets sometimes sell them off when they're getting over ripe. I bought 2 HUGE bags at $0.79/bag - well what would you do. We make bundt cake, banana bread, banana brownies and then freeze the rest of the bananas.

Awwww, I just love Madison, he is so gorgeous! Would love to give him a cuddle.

What a delicious looking cake!! It really looks special made in the bundt tin. I also have some overripe bananas in my kitchen (as I always do!) so I think a banana cake will have to be made today!

Mmm, I love the marbled effect! Looks delicious; I'd love a piece of that for breakfast (I don't think my breakfasting habits are normal).

And what a gorgeous cat! *cuggles Madison*
