Banana Cake

Banana - As it turns more yellow, the antioxidants in it increases somewhat it seems and this helps in protecting against cancer and heart diseases. I am not able to sell this idea at home, i.e. to get people to eat the very ripe bananas. So what do we do now? The hubby says make banana cake and I thought why not?

This is a very easy recipe, you don't need electric mixer or cake mixer to make this.
125g butter
150g caster sugar
1tsp vanilla essence
1 egg
3 very ripe bananas
190g self raising flour
60ml milk


  • Beat the egg and keep aside.
  • Mash the bananas and keep aside in a big bowl.
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter, sugar and vanilla essence over medium heat.
  • Remove from heat and add this to the mashed bananas. Mix well.
  • Add the egg and mix well.
  • Stir in the flour and milk. Mix well.
  • Pour into a greased tin and bake at 180 C for 35 mins or until a skewer comes out clean.
  • Leave it cool, yummilicious banana cake is ready!!!

  • Use some walnuts, it will be an awesome nutty cake, I didn't have any with me :(
  • Recipe adapted from allrecipes.
