Looking for a banana recipe that is flexible in both its ingredient list and serving options?
Dorie gives many suggestions for substituting or eliminating many items such as coconut, brown/white sugar, milk, sour cream, yogurt or buttermilk.
You can serve this cake as a single layer or double, frosted or simply dusted with confectioner's sugar.
I have a pan that I don't often use and thought it would be a good choice for topping with fruit. After halving the recipe, baking and cooling, I spread a thin layer of blueberry jam in the well.
I arranged sliced bananas along the edge and then mounded blueberries in the center.
A brushing of apricot glaze finished the top.
