Banana Nutella Cake

I have been baking cakes! The cake recipes from the Alice's Tea Cup Cookbook have served me well. In that capacity, the book comes recommended. However... I cannot yet speak to the usefulness of the chapter on how to throw a tea party.


  1. I wonder what it says about me that I always jump to the one-star reviews... but have you found the recipes that say to put in 1/4 cup of various spices? (Apparently not all quantities were scaled down from bakery scale!)

  2. I saw those reviews... I like to think that alarm bells would go off in my head if I saw a recipe that called for a 1/4 cup of cinnamon.

    Actually, I used only half of the amount of red food coloring that a red velvet cake called for (since that was all I had on hand) and the cake turned out sufficiently (indeed, extremely) red. So... who knows, maybe that represents another error.
