I have to be completely up-front – Lisa Yockelson (follow her blog http://www.bakingstylediary.com) is a client of my son, a literary agent (Unfortunately for coffee klatch bragging rights, I don’t have a son that is a doctor or a lawyer but I’m perfectly happy with what I’ve got!) BUT I would sing her praises no matter. Just received a copy of her latest baking tome, Baking Style, Art, Craft, Recipes and since I know that Lisa’s recipes always work, I decided to put the new book to the test. Uncle Nick at Zingone’s (see post, April 20, 2009) had given me a bag of bananas too ripe too sell, so I quickly thumbed through the pages and found “a gentle banana cake.” And here it is – perfection! Lisa suggested a cream cheese frosting, but I was hankering for some chocolate so did that instead. Either way it is an ethereal cake – I won’t give you the recipe, you’ll just have to buy the book.
