"THIS IS A PORTUGUESE RECIPE FOR USING UP YOUR OVER-RIPE BANANAS FOR A GREAT BREAKFAST TREAT OR A DESSERT. I FOUND THIS ON "TIA MARIA'S BLOG" AND HERE IS THE LINK - portuguesedinerdotcom/tiamaria/banana-cake-cinniman-sugar SHE REPORTS THAT THIS RECIPE IS FROM A FAN (NAMED MARY) FROM HER BLOG, THAT SHARED HER OWN PORTUGUESE RECIPE FOR THIS TREAT. SHE HAD IT POSTED IN BOTH SPANISH AND ENGLISH, BUT I AM JUST POSTING THE ENGLISH VERSION. NOTE: I MADE THIS RECIPE AS ORIGINALLY POSTED BY THE ABOVE, BUT NOW HAVE MADE SOME SLIGHT CHANGES (MASHING THE BANANAS AND COMBINING THE FLOUR, BAKING POWDER AND A DASH OF SEA SALT IN A BAG) BASED ON THE OUTCOME."

Another winner from diner. We loved this tasty banana cake. It was perfect, crispy, crunch, soft and tender, a little dense with a lovely flavor. I made this as written, but only made half the batter. I got 4 small bundt cakes, which is just perfect for the hubby and me. Thanks for sharing my friend. Made for CQ3 - Azores.

we really enjoyed this easy to make banana cake. I cut the recipe into 1/3 and baked them (18 minutes) in a muffin pan getting 8 muffins. The cake is very moist and a little dense. I also added some orange zest and vanilla which was nice with the banana. It's definitely on the sweet side so I might reduce the sugar a little the next time I make them. I think because of the egg whites when it bakes it gets the thin brittle crust of the cinnamon sugar when it bakes, it's really lovely tasting though it fractures when removing the muffins from the pan and I assume the same thing would happen with a bundt, maybe even more. they were still nice and moist and flavorful the next day so this would be a good make ahead treat.
