I am so excited to share this recipe for Bananas Foster Cake from my little sister, Amanda. Welcome to Glue and Glitter, li’l sis!
Why make extracts instead of buying them? For the same reason you cook anything! It’s cheaper to make it yourself, and you have total control over the ingredients. This recipe uses just two ingredients: organic almonds and booze. They’re ingredients you can buy at the store and that you recognize. No benzaldehyde (aka artificial almond flavor) here!
A buckle is sort of like cake-meets-pie in a messy and delicious way. You can use mulberries, blackberries, or any seasonal berries in this recipe.
Orange and ginger is such a classic combo, and it works beautifully in these vegan orange ginger cupcakes. I think the spicy ginger frosting is really the key.
