#BundtAMonth Strawberry and Banana Cake

007 (3)

I have this Rose Bundt cake pan that I love. It is kind of a pain because of all the ridges. The cake tends to stick. I had to bake this one twice. the first time I ended with more cake stuck in the bottom of the pan than on my cake plate. So with lots and lots of cooking spray and flour, the second time is a charm! If you havent guessed it yet. Today is #Bundtamonth. I love this group because I love cake and I love Bundt pans. The theme for March is all about tropical fruit.

Strawberries and Bananas make a great combination. This cake is moist and delicious. I will definitely make this again. The strawberries make it very moist and light. The bananas add a bit of density to the cake that balanced out quite nicely. The family loved it to which is an added plus.

    I admired your photo of this cake when you shared a sneak peak– it’s lovely. Sorry you had to make it twice but it looks like it was well worth it to get this result.
