I have been part of the Tuesdays with Dorie group for almost two years. I love the thrill of making a new recipe every week. There is one thing that I rarely do though, I very seldom change anything about the recipe. I usually don't even make the variation of the recipe. I just like to get a feel for the recipe before I change things around. Yes, I'm boring like that. This week I put all of that aside and got a little crazy. Woo hoo. I couldn't find cranberries and I didn't want another peach dessert so I decided to use bananas.
I was very happy with the changes. I also added walnuts for crunch. Bananas, walnuts, and the cinnamon cake made a great flavor combination. Sometimes change can be good. Thanks to Sabrina of Superfluous for picking this recipe.
