With the Cardinals in the MLB Playoffs (again!), I say, “Batter Up,” on the weekends to this killer pancake recipe. Your breakfast repertoire should always have a no-fuss option. This one always yields sweet results.
THE NOT-FROM-A-BOX DESSERT
I have a theory. The ready-to-make dessert aisle is silently killing your baking ambition. Yeah, I get it. Those box mixes are easy, but I promise, there are also more super efficient and delicious alternatives. Walk away from the box, and assuming you have all the essential baking base ingredients on hand (eggs, butter, sugars, cocoa powder, flour), these take less than ten minutes to get into the oven. Don’t be scared. It’s not a daunting task or a full-on production.
One of the things that brings great joy to my wife is my pastry education, allowing me to whip up sweets on demand. This client is tough to please. She has a killer sweet tooth, now passed down to Kid A, so having a repertoire of no-fuss sweets in my arsenal is key to a happy marriage. And chocolate cake is one of those splurges in my house.
THE NO-JOKE DESSERT:
There always seems to be a bit of humor when talking about bananas… (INSERT JOKE HERE) but I can assure you the only punchline for this no-frills banana cake recipe is how easy it is to make.
