Snack cakes are always a welcome treat. Join us as we whip up two of the best: banana bread and cream cheese coffee cake.
Any 10-year-old can make the typical dry, bland banana bread. But if you want to make a moist, tender loaf with over-the-top banana flavor, you need to think like a mad scientist.
A rich cream cheese filling adds a twist to ordinary coffee cake—unless it breaks away and sinks to the bottom of the pan.
You could boil water, let it cool, and check with an instant-read thermometer for the perfect cup of tea—or let technology do it for you.
