A Taste of Crime: Frida’s Banana Cake

It is no secret that I did not particularly like Murder with a Lake View that I read a few years ago. I kept the book though, because it has a recipe collection at the end.

I finally decided to bake Frida’s Banana Cake which is described as “a must in Frida’s picnic basket.” Frida is the main character Erik Gyllenberg’s housekeeper and she does all the cooking for him.

Bananas, eggs, butter, sugar, flour, vanilla extract, baking powder, sour cream, 40 minutes in the oven…and voilà Frida’s Banana Cake is ready! You were supposed to put some powdered sugar on top, which I forgot…

The purchase of the book was not completely wasted, since the banana cake turned out to be really yummy. I served it with vanilla ice cream instead of whipped cream.
