NO YOLKS(R) Chicken Noodle Soup
I followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out perfectly! Our family of four enjoyed this soup for lunches over a few days of "at home sick time". Perfect comfort food!

Banana Cake VIII
This should be called "The Best Ever Banana Cake". It is the best Banana cake on this site! Others masquerade as banana bread, but this is a light airy cake, perfect texture! Great if you have a ton of bananas to use up, I used 6 bananas in this. The only thing I didn't do was add the peanuts and sugar to the topping. Looking at reviews it didn't seem to go over well with some people, but the cake portion is absolutely perfect and deserves 5 stars!!

Surprise Banana Cake
I have to completely disagree with Krizia's review of this recipe. Krizia says the baking soda is useless in this recipe because it needs an acid to react with. Well, bananas are acidic!!! Butter is acidic also. That said I think Krizia was expecting a light cake, and probably thought the cake needed baking powder to help with the rise. This recipe is not a true cake, it is more like a banana bread(most banana breads only use baking soda as a chemical leavener)It is still a delicious cake/loaf, and as long as you don't over mix the batter you should end up with a moist banana-bread-type snacking cake.
