OLD FASHIONED BANANA CAKE

From my previous blog post, you can see that this is my first attempt in baking a ‘full’cake instead of muffins. I got the banana cake recipe from the July issue Food and Travel Magazine. A very simple and clear illustration of baking the banana cake.

Here are the ingredients for the banana cake:

3-4 ripe medium-size bananas, mashed

150g butter

2 Tbsp olive oil

150g caster sugar

4 Tbsp warm milk

2 eggs, beaten

1 tsp vanilla extract

240g plain flour

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

½ tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt

Methods:

  1. Preheat the oven to 170˚C. Butter and flour the baking tin.
  2. Mash the bananas, leaving some bite size chunks. It should not be too soggy. Set aside.
  3. Beat butter, olive and sugar together in a mixing bowl, at medium speed till pale and creamy.
  4. Add eggs gradually, beating well with each addition. Then add mashed bananas, milk and vanilla extract. Beat well to combine.
  5. Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt together.
  6. Add half of the flour mixture into the creamed mixture and gently fold in with a spatula. Add the remaining half and gently fold in until all the flour is incorporated.
  7. Gently pour the contents into the floured baking tin and bake for 17 – 20 mins or until the skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.
