Today is kind of a little celebration. My baby is six months old! I celebrated John’s one-month milestone because I was so relieved that we had all survived those first few difficult weeks. Life has thankfully gotten a lot easier since then, and this a much more light-hearted celebration. John is growing so fast! He changes almost every day, and it so fun to watch him grow and learn. He’s just learned to sit up, he loves eating real food, and he wins everyone over with his big smile and fun personality.
He is such a cutie, and I cannot imagine life without him.
Every celebration calls for cake, right? Of course, this particular cake is for my husband and I. John will get his special cake in another six months. I love how this dessert turned out. It’s a very simple cake, spiced and lightly flavored with banana and studded with chocolate chips. The rich brown butter icing almost steals the show (at least for this brown butter lover), and it compliments the cake so nicely. This banana-chocolate chip cake isn’t going to win any awards, and it isn’t mind-blowing, but I’m okay with that. It’s an everyday sort of cake, the kind you can make on a whim and enjoy after dinner on a weeknight.
Whether you’ve got something to celebrate, big or small (perhaps that it’s finally the weekend, yay!), or you just have a hankering for a cozy sweet fix, this cake recipe is for you.
