Banana Cream Cake... Grandma's recipe

It's one of my favorite things to find something like this... This was in my Grandma's recipe box, something I inherited and love to pull out every once in a while. My Dad has talked about how much he loved this it even one more reason to love it!

More than the big fluffy piles of whipped cream on the top of the cake, you'll notice that the recipe has only 7 ingredients (cream being the main one). I was totally impressed at the way the cake came out.

It is light and fluffy, and rich, but not too rich. Dad talks about the way he loved to eat it when his Mom made it for him... It was made from the fresh cream they had, sliced into layers with fresh banana's and more whipped cream on top.

...just doing my duty to pass that on to my son's!

...wish you could be here Dad to have a slice. I think you would have liked it. Notice I said would have... that picture was about the last of it. Soon after we devoured it!!!

if you would like to try it, and are having trouble reading it... (don't you love her handwriting though?...)
