Rose's Banana Refrigerator Cake
A quickie post on Rose Levy Beranbaum's Banana Refrigerator Cake, since I'm playing catch-up. This one is a lot like banana bread, but less dense and with a tender crumb, and topped with Rose's Dreamy Creamy White Chocolate Frosting (silly name). I normally dislike white chocolate, but the thin layer was a nice and not-too-sweet accompaniment.
Rose writes that the cake stays soft even in the refrigerator because oil is used instead of butter, hence the name. The cake is simple enough to make, although you may not have the white chocolate and turbinado sugar on hand, but it's nice for an occasional Sunday. Think of it as a fancier banana bread.
