Banana Cake

I was suppose to post these recipes before taking off from Qatar, but never got to it...Too many things to do in between

A good pick from http://masak-masak.blogspot.com/

Banana Cake



3 bananas - approximately 227grams (mashed)
3 beaten eggs
170gm sugar
227 plain flour
1 teaspoon soda bicarbonate
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (118ml) melted butter or oil
1 teaspoon vanilla essence I use banana essence instead.

  • Butter and flour the cake tin. Mash the bananas in a measuring cup. If you like pieces of bananas in your cake, leave some bigger pieces intact.  I blend the bananas as I dont like the lumpy pieces.
  • Mix the egg and sugar in a bowl until it is well mixed with a hand beater.
  • Sift the flour, soda bicarbonate and salt together.
  • Add mashed banana and mixed egg to flour mixture and mix together with the hand beater. Pour into the prepared cake tin.
  • If using the round ring cake mould, bake for 40 minutes at 180C. I used a loaf pan which took about 50 minutes at 180C. Test the middle of the cake to check if it's cooked before removing from the oven.  I too used a loaf pan...it turned out perfectly well.
