Two overly ripe bananas inspired this banana cake with penuche frosting. The recipes for both are from my 1960 vintage Betty Crocker Cookbook. It was a gift from my neighbor, Peggy. She taught me a lot about cooking over the years.
If baking a cake, why not bake a pie or two, too? It's windy and snowy here for a couple of days and a turkey pot pie seemed as though it would go nicely with the cake. I like a generous amount of veggies in my pot pies and peel, chop and simmer with a few spices. A bonus was an extra bit of vegetable stock for soup later. I make a white sauce, thin it with veggie stock if needed, then add a topping of regular pie crust. The smaller one in the foil container will go in the freezer for another day.
