Banana Cake

More culinary delights from the little ones of tummy mountain. They truly are experts in the kitchen. Today they would like to share with you their secret recipe for banana cake.


1. Bananas
2. Cake


This recipe is best attempted when parents are not in the room.

1. Peel all the bananas - it doesn't matter how many the recipe asks for - just peel all of them.

2. Then squeeze the bananas in your hands so all the squishy banana bits go through your fingers.

3. Stare at the squishy banana bits in utter amazement.

4. Hold hands up to other little ones and make them understand about the amazing squishy bananas on your hands until you realize that you no longer like squishy bananas all over your hands.

5. Run out of kitchen and wipe squished bananas into the hall carpet thoroughly.

6. Scrape remaining banana and carpet fluff into bowl.

7. Pour great quantities of herbs and spices into the bowl too. It doesn't matter what the herbs and spices are. Preferably you should empty out each bottle. Optional: Any sauce will make a lovely garnish at this point. 

8. Follow any remaining directions from the Small One who is pretending she can read the cook book.

9. Add sprinkles

10. Put mixture bowl outside in the sunshine and forget for two hours.

11. Return and discover that the ants are very happy indeed.

12. Bring bowl and ants back into house and try to wash ants out in the bathroom.

There is no step 13 - unluckily for the little ones they were discovered at this point and were not able to complete their recipe.

Yet they would like to encourage other little ones out there to follow their example and see what variations of this wonderful Banana Cake recipe they may create for themselves.

They guarantee that the results will always be surprising.

I agree. Something easy to serve when friends drop in. Perhaps friends that like to help cook too.

I wonder if this might work with peaches...
