We have some fun stuff this week in blogroll, so let’s get right to it!
BANANA BUNDT CAKE: Okay, a couple of things about this recipe. I know banana recipes do lousy on Amish365, people don’t like bananas on my site. I get that. But this cake looks so good that I thought I’d take my chances and share. Man, look at that THICK layer of frosting. Holy cow, I’d easily polish that cake off in a day or two. Amazing.

EASY CUSTARD PIE: This recipe comes to us from a Mennonite cookbook, “From the Farm House Kitchen” by Dawn Stoltzfus and Carol Falb , and was posted on the Charm City blog. It looks like a wonderful, easy recipe. Click here.

The industry has come roaring back and the Amish are as dependent on it as ever. Click here to read more.
AMISH “DRIVER’S ED” – A fun set of photos from Tom chronicling some young Amish drivers on a pony cart. You really do have to be careful around young Amish drivers who often use a pony before “graduating” to a horse and buggy. Click here to see.
