There is a sudden craving for banana cake and as I browse the internet for a simple and quick recipe, I decided to try this one from Anncoo Journal. The recipe does not need butter and promises a light and soft version. Well, true enough, it is very light and you can easily gobble up the whole cake.
So, on a lazy Sunday afternoon, this recipe is indeed a quick fix.
The recipe :
2 medium size banana - mashed
2 small eggs ( original recipe calls for 1 large egg but I only have the small ones)
90g vegetable oil
125g top flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
25g evaporated milk
1/4 tsp vanilla essence
- Beat egg and sugar till light and creamy
- Add in oil, essence , mashed banana and milk - mix to combine
- Add sifted flour with baking powder and soda into the egg mixture and fold in lightly.
- Pour into prepared pan and bake at pre-heated oven of 175 degrees celcius for about 25-30mins depending on your oven. Top should be golden brown and an inserted skewer should comes out clean to test if cake is done.
Make sure you are using bananas that are over ripen so that the cake will have a more intense banana flavour. You may need to increase the sugar if you want a more sweeter cake. I might try it with butter and add in some cinnamon & walnut the next time for an added crunch.
