You know how on Sunday you try to catch up with house work, yard work, and more house work, and Pinterest? And then come Monday, you’re like, damn, wish I could just relax today… Isn’t it supposed to be the other way around? Rest on Sunday, work on Monday?

So. It’s been way too long since we discussed cake. I made you a Chocolate Kahlua Cake a while back and we haven’t had one since. That cake was a boozy one as well.

Think I might have a slight infatuation with drunk desserts…

I even made a Boozy Chocolate Dipping Sauce.

Too bad I can’t hang with more than one shot of tequila. The dirty-30’s and I met up one January day and all that alcohol tolerance left me together with my twenties!

Aaaaaanyways… This cake.

It’s boozy. Aaaand it’s really good. Don’t have to take my word for it. Just make it and you’ll see. What else are you gonna do with all those black bananas?!

See!? Now you have a reason to keep them until a million fruit flies start to fly around. I know… ewwwww! But, it’s true – the darker the banana, the better the cake.

You can also throw in fun things like coconut milk, lime juice, RUM! A burst of the tropics are about to meet your mouth! Get ‘er Done!!

  1. Girl this cake looks incredible! I put a coconut-rum cake in my cookbook. It was more bars than cake though. I love that you used bananas and made it into poundcake. Pass the malibu and coconut milk please! 🙂
