{twd} classic banana bundt cake

"We have an important decision to make," I said to my friend Colleen, opening Baking From My Home to Yours to this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection. "We could either add chocolate chips to the banana cake and have it for dessert, or leave them out and have it for breakfast." Colleen's reply? "Why can't we do both?" And that, dear readers, is why Colleen and I are such good friends. Chocolate for breakfast? Why not indeed! Well, as it turns out, there was one reason--we were out of chocolate chips. But no matter, because this cake was amazing just as it is. And, if you must know, we ate it for both dessert and for breakfast.

Thanks to the Food Librarian (one of my favorites--check her out!) for this week's pick!

I have to agree that I think this cake would be terrific for either dessert of breakfast. I thought about adding chocolate chips to mine but got lazy and left them out. Your cake is gorgeous!

I love it- do both! too bad you were out of the chocolate chips! This cake is just amazing, there is less than half left here already and I just made it yesterday :)

This is a versatile cake, I agree. Breakfast, dessert, mid-day snack. All of the above worked for me!
