This recipe is from Good Enough to Eat restaurant located in New York City. This restaurant is known for its comfort food and spectacular desserts. They have been serving American home cooking on the Upper West Side Since 1981. For those with a sweet tooth, Chef Michele Weber’s banana rum cake with bacon sprinkles is the perfect combination of sweet and salty. Banana rum cake blends one of our favorite drinks with a rum cake and pound cake. And you can’t go wrong with a chocolatey, bacony, cream cheese frosting! The result is a moist cake that is not too dense with a deliciously rich frosting. Follow Good Enough to Eat on Twitter and Facebook.
