Tropical Cake (D, TNT)
Source: My mother
Yield: 1 10" or 11" cake

1-1/2 cup butter or margarine
2-1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs, separated
3/4 tsp. rum flavoring (you can use nut flavoring instead)
4 ripe bananas, mashed
4 cups all-purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup milk

Cream butter or margarine with sugar, beat in the egg yolks one by one, and add flavoring. Add mashed bananas.

Sift together flour and baking powder, mix in the nuts. Making this, you avoid the nuts to accumulate at the cake bottom.

Add to the batter alternately the flour mixture and milk, a little of each, each time.

Finally, beat egg whites until stiff and mix them carefully to the batter.

Put in greased (oiled, sprayed with PAM or whatever...) 10" or 11" springform cake pan, and bake in low or medium low oven until you do the toothpick test, and it comes out clean.

This cake is marvelous filled or/and covered with Chantilly [Archivist's note: this is a whip made of heavy cream and sugar], and don't even dare to count calories!!!!!!!!!!
