HCB: Banana Cake

I had 3 almost rotten bananas, so instead of throwing them away, I made the banana cake from Rose's Heavenly Cakes' page 391 re Tropical Wedding Cake. I made them into cupcakes..and they yield about 20 muffin cups. Ran out of time and ended up making normal cream cheese frosting.  

After baking this, i realised that there's another banana cake recipe - refrigerated banana cake in the book that i haven't not made it yet!  I should have made that instead.   Nonetheless, this banana cake is amazing. It's very dense, light crumbs and extremely moist.    Everyone in my family loves it.

Lately, i find it harder to blog, i made some cupcakes and cakes but was just too lazy to blog.  Also seems like recently i have a lot of things going on at the same i'm constantly pressed for time but yet i have no idea what i'm that occupied with either!  It's either a sign that i'm aging and can't muti-task as fast as i used to or just bad time management.    As a typical Singaporean, i always expect things to be done that i can have more time to move on to other things... Hence i was wondering if it is because of this, i found it impossible to enjoy the dinner i had last Friday at a supposedly well-known restaurant called Waku Ghin.  A family friend invited us there and i had no idea it was a popular restaurant and impossible to get a reservation too..apparently i heard you have to book months in advance!   The 10-course dinner took about 3-hours and i wanted fall asleep half way through the dinner.  Food was good and above average but certainly not worth the $ that our family friend had to pay...6 of us cost $3,200 or there about.  With that amount of $, i would rather buy a branded bag and hug it to sleep. I could even buy 2 pairs of Jimmy Choos or Christian Louboutins or Manolo Blahniks.  But since i'm not the one paying for it, i shouldn't complain too much but be appreciative for this opportunity to fine dining. :p
