baked nectarine cake

Nectarine Cinnamon Banana CakeI've really come to like the taste of baked nectarines and cinnamon together. They go together quite nicely. This cake is full of nectarines and bananas and is a lovely fruit explosion for the transition of summer to autumn. The nectarine slices are not only pretty on top, but they help keep the cake luxuriously moist. The coconut powder gives the cake a really nice gritty crunch. I love topping a slice of this with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Tiny Black Biting Bugs?I have recently been seeing these little black dots on my skin. They bite maybe because I feel the pain. My skin gets red and swells a little. It doesn't last very long though. These dots are really small. I went to the doctor after treating with permethrin cream head to toe and threw away or bagged and washed all clothes and rugs. I got an air mattress also and threw old out my old one.
