Almond Banana Bundt Brake

Almond Banana Bundt Brake by Custom Taste
You may be thinking "Brake? What does this cake looking thing have to do with stopping?". Well the answer is nothing. This "brake" got it's name because it tastes like a sweet bread but has the texture of a cake, pretty sweet huh? It is filling, not too sweet and a perfect treat for breakfast or an after workout snack. Plus you can always throw it together whenever your bananas get too brown to eat by themselves.

Add in your baking soda and pour in flour a 1/2 cup at a time, mixing throughly before adding the next cup
At this point drop the butter into your bundt pan and put the pan into the oven until the butter melts
While the butter is melting mix the vinegar into the batter
Make sure to mix the batter well and at least for 1 minute to make sure the vinegar is fully incorporated
Once the butter has melting remove the pan from the oven and using the basting brush, brush the butter all over the pan making sure to get the center and the crevices

When the cake is done lay the plate over the top and using oven mitts or towel flip the plate and bundt cake over together and give the bundt cake a tap. The cake should slide out easily

Let cool before eating
