I think if you love bananas and you love to bake, you're always
And, this time, though, I wanted to combine orange and banana. And, sure, we all know there would have to be booze involved. I personally love bourbon with both orange and banana, so I figured I had the potential for a double "win" here!
This loaf cake is super easy to make and amazingly moist. I was surprised how much it rose in the pan, yet was not overly dense. I like loaf cakes, but I especially like moist and dense loaf cakes.
This recipe is adapted from a cookbook, Ida's in the Kitchen, which I was gifted about 3 years ago when my father and I drove to Utah and Colorado. We visited some of his former work colleagues when he as stationed at Dugway Proving Grounds. I was lucky enough to get my pick of over 100 cookbooks from his friend, Vera, who had just lost her husband, the avid cook in their home. Ida's in the Kitchen is one of those books...Filled with old-fashioned baking and simple and easy recipes.

I hope you try this loaf cake. It's easy to pull together, nothing fancy or complicated. And the end result has lots and lots of WOW factor!!
