Black Bottom Banana Cake Squares

Michelle shared a banana cake recipe for dessert at the South Arm Seniors Kitchen. In fact, we had two desserts for this kitchen. We enjoyed the double desserts from Michelle’s cravings for sweets during her last leg of pregnancies. The recipe is inspired by Stella’s contributions of frozen bananas from her freezer.

Michelle told us that the best way to freeze unused ripen banana is as it is. Do not store them in ziplock bag or they’ll become soggy.
