I have been planning to bake banana cake for a long time but buying it has been very tough as I didn't get the exact type I was looking for. Two days back, I managed to buy some and immediately planned to bake my favourite cake. The most important thing to get a perfect cake is the mashing of banana to a very fine and smooth paste then let it oxidize for at least 30 minutes to get wonderful cake after baking the cake. Mine didn't turn out as expected as I didn't have the patience to wait for it to oxidize perfectly but the cake was so yummy and finished in two days.
Now let's look at how to bake this yummy yummy cake;
1 cup of mashed bananas (I have added 2 cups)
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
1 and 1/2 cup of plain flour
1 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1/4 cup of milk
3/4 cup of soft brown sugar
3 large eggs
A pinch of salt
Sift plain flour, baking soda and baking powder, keep aside.
Beat brown sugar, salt, vegetable oil and eggs until fluffy then add vanilla extract. Now alternately add the dry ingredients with milk. Finally add mashed bananas and fold in to the cake batter.
Pour the batter into a buttered cake pan and bake for 35-45 minutes at 150-180 degrees or until the cake is well baked.
Let the baked cake cool for at least 2 hours before cutting and serving it. Now our Moist Banana Cake is ready to be served. I prefer eating the cake chilled, do try and let me know how it turned out for you!
