This is a gud yummy banana recipe, A̶̲̥̅♏ gonna try it out.But what's the lifespan of the cake because of the banana can it last long?


I live in Mexico and cannot find "self rising flour". I see this listed in quite a few ingredients lists. What do I use instead? Is there a standard conversion that breaks this down into regular flour and baking soda/powder, or whatever?


The whole family LOVED it. Approved and asked for more...lasted 1 1/2 day only, that's because I hided 1. ;) Didn't used the honey glazed thou and used 4oz oz light brown sugar & 2 oz of regular granulated sugar. Deliciousssss.....


to desfox13, If you don't like salt, you can leave it out, just up the baking powder a bit (I would probably add 2 teaspoons baking powder to 1 cup flour). An alternative method is to add one teaspoon of cream of tartar and half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to one cup of plain flour - this gives the same result.
