And why do we have no bananas? Because I used them this morning, that's why! I found an adapted recipe for Dori Greenspan's Banana Bundt Cake on montcarte's blog. She had made a Rum Drenched Banana Bundt Cake. The title really appealed to me, but because I had no rum in the house, I decided to use the Lemon Glaze for the recipe that she provided.

This morning I woke up early as usual, but instead of heading off early to the University to work out, I stayed home and accomplished a TON of work before leaving for work! (3- loads of laundry, putting dishes away from the dishwasher, AND making this cake!). There have been 3 very stressed out people in the office the last week. This is the crunch for our ABET self study to be submitted. So, last week I made the Almond Joy Muffin's (for the 2nd time! they are so yumm!) that I found on Elle's blog. Everyone loved them by the way! So this morning, I took half of this banana cake in to "comfort" Levon and Stefan as they have been working so hard! Oh, yeah, I did comfort myself with a piece too!
My son also called me after having a slice of the cake to find out what I made the glaze with because he thought it was awesome. I was blown away by this and it just goes to show fresh is best! I could have used lemon juice out of a jar, but I don't like to go that route and I like to use the freshest ingredients possible for the best taste! Guess it showed!
So, Kim, thank you for posting the recipe for this cake. I probably will try it with the rum sauce in the future (and make double the glaze!) when I actually have some rum in my house again! You were a part in making today special for a few people!
