I fondly remember my mother having some type of foil-covered treat--brownies, cake, bars--in the kitchen at all times. Dreamy, creamy banana cake was often in the pan, the perfect after-school snack. This recipe takes a slight twist on traditional banana cake. The addition of oats gives the cake an almost nutty texture, making it denser than what a classic recipe may yield. Use overripe bananas to ensure a fresh, banana flavor--even mushy bananas work. Hard bananas will not give flavor or contribute to the moist crumb. Serve this cake straight from the pan with a cup of tea--or better yet, a big glass of milk. You'll feel like you're sitting right at Mom's counter.
