This is one of those recipes that I know I can’t do justice to through writing. Probably not even through photography. It’s that good.
A friend of mine made it for us a few months ago, and I have been dying to get my hands on the recipe ever since. And I know I’m not the only one– I’ve had friends clamoring for the recipe as well after sampling this one!
All I can say is: this recipe is well worth the wait.
My friend brought this recipe back with her from Bolivia, where they call it “Hope Cake.” I think what sets it apart from other banana cakes is the cream cheese. An entire brick of cream cheese is mixed into the batter and contributes to a dense, rich, and fluffy cake that has just a little bit of tang.
This cake is for sure going to be a staple in our house from now on!
