Banana and apple cake – and Happy New Year

And just like that, here we are in 2021. Let’s hope it is an improvement on 2020! I never stick to my new year resolutions but still make them nevertheless. Hopefully I will stick to this one: bake more cakes and update this blog more often. I wonder how many people have baked a banana cake over the past 9 months? Here’s one with a small twist………
