Set up for the antique show is tomorrow! Jim and Duane hauled all the tubs and fixtures to the Expo today, so I had a little break. It's Tea Time Thursday already, so I am featuring a little snack set of Japanese Lusterware. It's a lovely peach color and very sweet. I just love snack sets! This was a good find at the Goodwill thrift store. The cake is my mom's recipe that I used to make often. I haven't made it forever but I ended up with some "dead bananas" and that always meant banana cake when I was growing up!
Yes, those are "dead bananas" and my mom's recipe. It's a simple recipe and very easy to make. It sure has a well used look!
A nice batter ready for the oven. It only takes 30 minutes to bake.
The only change I made was adding 1/2 cup of golden raisins. My mom always used walnuts, but my family prefers pecans.
I made a butter cream icing. You can used a cream cheese frosting or just dust with powdered sugar.
I keep my dessert recipes in this vintage wooden recipe box.
While I was at the Goodwill, I found a few pieces of a children's toy dish set also Japanese Lusterware. I pick up these little pieces when I find them. Just so cute.
Another little set of Japanese Lusterware~salt and pepper shakers that sit on a sweet little tray.
I love the colors. A very fun thing to collect.
The cake turned out to be quite yummy. It was fun to make a recipe from the past! The smell of the cake baking sure brought home good memories.
