Confinement Recipe #9: Moist Banana Cake 🍌😊

Written on 03/21/2021

Too ripe to eat and you don't know what to do with your leftover bananas? Here's a little trick, put them in the freezer and gather all the ingredients to make a banana cake. Those "too ripe" bananas will make your cake very moist, you'll just have to let them defrost before making the cake. 

For a banana cake, you'll need:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 bananas small
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 50 ml milk
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour

Arm yourself with a loaf pan or muffin tins and a whisk and you should be good to start:

  • Cream butter, sugar and vanilla.
  • Add eggs separately, beating well.
  • Mash bananas and add to mixture.

  • Dissolve soda in milk and add flour and milk alternately.
  • Bake in 2 greased tins or 1 large tin at 180C for 35-40 minutes or until cooked.

Great with both morning and afternoon coffee or tea. What are you exactly waiting to try it?!
