Do you remember Bananarama? I had this song on a 45. Maybe it was my sister's. I was always stealing her stuff. Anyway, loved this song when it was out back in the day.

Different kind of bananarama today. You recall that the nutritionist recommended that I drink Kefir for breakfast, so I've been blending it up with fruit, a little milk, and some ice cubes. Pretty good. Bananas were on sale last week, so I stocked up, then went to visit my mom. I returned home to a bowlful of these:

This recipe came from a regional cook-off contestant. Great way to use bananas.

Banana Crunch Cake

Crumb Mixture:

1/2 c. flour

1 c. rolled oats

1/2 c. chopped pecans

1 c. coconut

3/4 c. packed brown sugar

1/2 c. butter


2 large, very ripe bananas

4 eggs

1/2 c. sour cream

1 pkg. yellow cake mix

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 10" tube pan (I used my Bundt pan.) In medium bowl, mix together the flour, coconut, oats, brown sugar, and pecans. Cut in butter with a fork. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine bananas, sour cream, bananas, and eggs. Blend until smooth. Add cake mix. Beat two minutes at high speed. Spread 1/3 batter into prepared pan, sprinkle 1/3 of crumb mixture. Repeat twice, ending with the crumb mixture. Bake at 350 degrees fro 50-60 minutes. Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then remove from pan. Place on serving platter crumb mixture side up.

That looks so good. I always have bananas on my counter that look like that. I'll have to try this cake with them.
