Too Many Overripe Bananas?

Candy | Jun 11, 200709:50 AM     4

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y75/... This is a Vietnamese Banana Cake called Bahn Chuoi The are the flat round cakes next to the white take-out carton.

Last weekend we had an Asian pot luck. One guest was unskilled in any sort of Asian cooking so I suggested this recipe to her. It was amazing and so simple. If you want to make it riht away look for the ripest bananas you can find and even then give then a day or so to blacken. You will need 1 1/2 lbs. bananas

Then grease an 8: round cake pan and line with parchment. Select the firmest ripe banana and set aside half of it for the top of the cake. Slice the remaining half and the rest of the bananas into 1/8th " slices and put them in a bowl. Mix toghter 1 egg slightly beater with 1/4 C. whole milk and 1/4 c. melted butter. Add 3/4 C. all purpose flour and combine gently with the sliced bananas. Pour into the prepared pan. Slice the ramaining banana 1/16" thick and arrange drcoratively over the top. Sprinkle with 1 tsp sugar.

Bake at 375F and bake 11/2 hours until golden. The cake will puff during baking and collapse while cooling on the rack. It is quite dense and would be nice embellished wirh a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream.
