Banana Cake

This weekend I had a few bananas on my counter that were in dreadful condition, the temperature outside had dropped and it created the perfect opportunity to do some baking. I combined a few different banana recipes that I found online to create these delicious banana cake bars – trust me you won’t be able to just eat one!
