Whenever we make Smitten Kitchen’s strawberry cake, everybody in our home goes bananas. It’s heat and moist and makes the house scent like a strawberry patch. There are sure recipes that folks simply love, and that’s positively one of them.
On the topic of crowdpleasing recipes, a reader named Midge wrote: “The best banana bread recipe is this one from a million years ago. It has three tablespoons of bourbon, and when my friend tried it, she said, ‘You should take that shit to the fair.’”
