I'm an HR practitioner. I love cooking and baking because of their incredible capacity to engage all the senses.

Of all my mom's desserts, this banana cake is my favorite.

Mom's Banana Cake

My mom is a wonderful cook and baker. She taught me many recipes over the years, but this banana cake recipe is the one that I cherish the most.

Whenever I bite into this moist, delicious cake, I am immediately brought back to my childhood. The sweet aroma of this cake baking in the oven would draw everyone in the family together in the kitchen, where we shared many happy times together.

My mom always said that baking is very artistic, and that it requires a lot of patience. She also said that if you cooked from the heart, the end result would always come out well and taste great. From her, I learned that baking is a labor of love that should be passed on from generation to generation.

She also reminded me that cooking is a great way to take a break from my busy life at work. She said it helps mental health by providing a creative outlet to channel energy and productively express emotions.

This homemade banana cake is truly a family favorite. I always look forward to going back home when I have the chance. When I do, the sweet aroma of this cake always welcomes me back.

Try making this cake and share it with your family!

      Mom's recipe is always the best, Ron. I've been cooking my mother's recipe since I was a young girl. Banana bread is one of my favorite snacks. I noticed you've used evaporated milk in the ingredients. Perhaps I should try next time I'm making the banana bread again. Thanks for sharing.
