Brazilian Banana Cake

Recipe by Sassy in da South

A wonderfully delicious banana cake from Brazil. Nuts may be added into the batter or onto the cake if desired.

I didn't make it exactly like the recipe because once i got towards the bottom I realized that the banana wasn't actually put into the cake so I improvised. Make sure you read all directions before making the cake. (I'm sure the cake would've tasted great otherwise)
