We make Nigella’s lemon syrup loaf cake almost once a month around here. It’s great with tea. You stab the cake (which is not too sweet and full of lemon zest) a lot and pour the syrup (which is just lemon juice and powdered sugar) over the top. It sinks in over several minutes.

Every time we bake it we end up playing this and then singing it all day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQliRNdiV8o#t=53

My bananas finally turned yellow, so I went to the liquor store and made some shit happen.

I call this “tres rums” since there’s rum in the banana cake, the frosting and the caramelized-nuts-and-bananas topping :)

WHERE was this cake when I was frantically searching the entire world for a LOTR cake for Ananda’s birthday last year? I could make it this June but, well, she’s currently organizing an opening night, midnight-showing group trip to the Hunger Games premiere, and planning to use the last of her money to buy a Hunger Games shirt, and sitting around debating with me about whether the Hunger Games are fantasy, sci-fi or dystopian, and making me listen to long winded diatribes about things I just don’t understand about the Hunger Games.
