I have no idea who Emily was, but it's been in the family for a long time. My mom used to make this whenever we had an excess of brown bananas. Even yummier than banana bread! If you wish, you can frost with cream cheese frosting, but it's wonderful as is, especially hot from the oven with milk.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 12 cups flour
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 12 teaspoon ground mace

  • 1 cup very over-ripe banana, mashed (3 or 4)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
