Banana Cake

I find many recipes for Banana Cake are gluggy and far too moist…. however this recipe I found is perfection.

It is great for using up the bananas that have become too ripe and too brown to eat.

What You Need…

  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1/2 cup Caster Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3 small Bananas
  • 1 teaspoon Bi-carbonate Soda
  • 50ml Milk
  • 1 1/2 cups Self Raising Flour

What You Do…

  1. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla essence
  2. Add eggs separartely, beating in well
  3. Mash Bananas, and then add to mixture
  4. Dissolve the bicarbonate soda in the milk
  5. The add flour and milk gradually to mixture, stirring well
  6. Bake in either 2 small greased tins, or 1 large tin… at 180°C for 35minutes or until cooked.

I usually serve this cake buttered, but you don’t have to do this.

REMEMBER: you can always slice these over ripe bananas, place in a zip-lock bag, and freeze to use in smoothies and cakes later on. Just defrost the slices before using in cake recipes.
