Make, Take, & Bake: Brazilian Banana Cake

Make, Take, & Bake: Brazilian Banana Cake
Thursday, July 18th at 6:30 pm

REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Adults only. This program is part of the multi-library summer program. Participants need to read the short story Nellie by Vanessa Barbara. You can pick up a copy at the library or check out an e-version from Hoopla.

Participants will need to bring a large mixing bowl, a small bowl (at least cereal bowl sized), a mixing spoon, and a 9" square baking pan.

The author of our short story Nellie, Vanessa Barbara, is from the southern part of Brazil. We will create a traditional Brazilian crumb cake from this region. Then participants will finish off the cake at home by baking.

While we work on our delicious crumb cake, we'll talk about our author and our short story.
