Buckwheat Banana Date Cake

I have a confession: I suck at baking. I don’t like to follow directions.  My ego wants me to put a bunch of ingredients in a bowl, wave a magic wand, and create something delicious.  It’s easier to do this with savory dinners in a pot on a stove than it is in baking.  Baking…
