having to be up early both saturday and sunday makes me a little crabby on this lovely fall friday. don’t get me wrong, i love watching stella play basketball. when she graduates next year i’ll miss it.  i also miss mornings without an alarm.

either way, i’ll be there cheering her on.  with snacks of course. this banana cinnamon bundt cake can be breakfast (hello it’s fruit) or a post game snack.  maybe reward yourself for getting up early on a saturday with a slice for dessert. there’s no wrong time to enjoy a slice of cake.

how to make the best bundt cake

let  your cold items come to room temperature before mixing. ingredients will blend more easily and you will end up with a better texture.

mix your dry and wet ingredients separately. they will blend faster and you can avoid over mixing.

feel free to keep your brown butter banana cinnamon bundt cake plain, but i am in LOVE with a bit of powdered sugar and cinnamon sprinkled on top.
