Bananas Foster Cake from my sweet vegan.
this is such a good cake!like the cake part is SO light and fluffy and very very banana-y.and the caramel frosting is excellent.i love bananas,caramel and rum,so this cake is like perfect.i knew i would make it first,seeing the picture of it on hannah's blog back in august is what got me interested in her blog/book and boy am i glad i did.

how awesome it is that fellow blogger hannah(who leaves such sweet comments on mine sometimes!) is only a year older than me and accomplished creating such a beautiful and inspiring book.
i can't wait to try out some more recipes from the book!they're all really,really creative or unusual.definitely something to be getting excited about.

Wow! That cake is fabulous and looks so much like the picture in the book. All these blog posts are convincing me that I need that cookbook! Thank you for the nudge in a sweet direction.

Evan - thank you so much! That piece was fantastic, I ate it during my break. I think I may need to visit Sidecar during the break and pick up that book! Hope to see you over the break once I get some time off of work!

I love how your cake and Hannah's photo look identical! I'll have to bookmark that recipe in the book, to bake asap...
