  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 3 Ripe Bananas, broken into pieces
  • 210 grams Self Raising Flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
  • 2 tablespoons Milk (20 grams)

Recipe's preparation

    Banana Cake
  1. Pre heat Oven to 160 degrees fan forced


    Place Sugar into TM bowl and blitz 3 seconds, speed 10


    Add Butter (roughly cubed) to sugar mixture and  cream speed 5, 10 seconds.  


    Add Eggs one at a time, followed by Vanilla Essence speed 5, 10 seconds.  Scrape any loose mixture down sides of bowl. 


    Add Bananas and combine mixture 10 seconds, speed 5.


    Add SR Flour to TM bowl.


    Using the MC, combine the Bicarbonate of Soda and Milk in the MC.  Once combined, add to the TM bowl and combine all ingredients 15 seconds, speed 5.


    Pour into greased lined baking tin or muffin tray and bake 30 - 60 minutes. 


    Use a skewer to test the centre of the cake to ensure the cake is well cooked.


    Rest for 10 minutes before removing the cake to rest on a wired rack.



Accessories you need



Top cake with "frosting or icing" if desired

Try cooking cake in muffin tins and adding a handful of chocolate chips.  This can be incorporated just prior to adding the SR Flour.  Remember to use the Counter-clockwise operation button though.

If cooking muffins, reduce the cooking time to approximately 25-30 minutes, whereas when cooking the cake version, the cooking process generally takes 50-60 minutes.
