If you know my family, we have a difficult time truly agreeing on anything food. Well, other than the fact that we all love to eat. It is not different for sweet treats. This is where a ridiculously simple and multilayered cake comes in handy. These bars are in the style of a snacking cake, they are quick, simple, and not overly sweet. But in their simple appearance lurks loads of flavor. A wide array of magical notes that hit you in different ways when you enjoy these bars.
The cake gets a nice amount of lightness from the buttermilk, notes of spice from the orange, cinnamon, cloves and ginger. To ensure that the marbling keeps up with with the spice this has both coffee and cocoa. And anything that uses bananas just makes for a warm moist hug. This cake takes about 15 minutes to put together. Around the time it takes for the oven to reach the baking temperature. So, there really is no reason not to make it anytime the craving hits.
