I buy bananas with the idea of eating them right away, but somehow I always end up with a couple that have ripened too much for my taste. I ran across a recipe for Spiced Prune cake in Food Everyday which I baked and it is delicious. So, as most of us cooks do, I decided to try a variation with, you guessed it, bananas! Many combinations of fruit & nuts would be fun to try, pears, pecans, etc....enjoy!
