I think like many others I watch Hurricane Sandy rip through the east coast last week. It was crazy to see the water, wind and flooding. I was glued to CNN steadily watching the water rise. I don’t think it was really apparent how bad the destruction was until the light of day.
I wanted to do something, but I didn’t know what. I wanted to reach out from way over here and give a big hug to all those affected by this frankenstorm. I was on twitter and saw that a tweet from Barb at Creative Culinary about Food Bloggers Support for Sandy.
Post something comforting that you would give to someone affected by this storm and a link for readers to donate. That I could do.
I wanted something that would make the whole house smell delicious. Something to warm the soul. I decided on a banana molasses bundt cake. I actually made vegan cookies a while ago that had banana and molasses in them and love the combination. Oh and frosting. It had to have frosting, so I decided on a cinnamon cream cheese frosting, all fluffy on top.
This cake is extremely moist and the molasses flavor is mild yet interesting. The cake is dense and rich and perfectly comforting.
Red Cross is providing food, shelter, and other forms of support to hurricane victims. You can donate directly to the Red Cross or you can also text the word “Redcross” to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
I don’t have really any expendable money but I donated a small amount. Every little bit helps.
