Seriously Yummy Banana Cake



1 piece(s)

Banana Cake

  • 3 Large Ripe Bananas
  • 170 grams brown sugar
  • 190 grams Butter
  • 2 free range eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon Bi-carb soda
  • 50 grams full cream milk
  • 290 grams Wholemeal Self Raising Flour
  • 10 grams vanilla extract

Recipe's preparation

  1. Crack your two eggs into a bowl and set aside.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 160 degrees. I have a fairly hot oven, so I use 150 degrees. Adjust the temperature to suit your oven type.
  3. Grease and line a 20cm baking tin. I have used both square and round and both have worked well.
  5. Place the three large peeled bananas into the bowl. Mix 5 Seconds/Speed 5/MC on. Leave the bananas in the bowl.
  6. Using the scales add the following ingredients to the bowl: 170 grams of brown sugar, 190 grams of butter - chopped into cubes, 10 grams of vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon of bi-carb soda and 40g full cream milk.

    Mix together for 5 Seconds/Speed 5/MC on. Scrape down sides of the bowl and heat for 4 Minutes/Gentle stir setting/90°c/Counter-clockwise operation/MC on.
  7. Using the scales add 290g of wholemeal self raising flour, and the cracked egg to the bowl. Mix the batter for 3 minutes/Speed 4/Counter-clockwise operation/MC on. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix longer if necessary. You should now have a a beautiful caramel smelling batter, ready to pour into the tin.
  8. Pour batter into cake tin and bake at 160 degrees for 1 hour. Check at the 50 minute mark to see how the cake is going. Insert a skewer to test. If it comes out clean then the cake is done!
  9. Let the cake cool for five minutes in the tin, before turning out onto a wire rack. Whilst cooling, the outside will go ever-so-slightly crisp and create a delicious crust! So yummy!
  10. Serve with fresh cream and passionfruit (or fresh banana). Or cover it with your favourite icing and gobble it up fast! It won't last very long.

Accessories you need



If you are using a cheap wholemeal flour then it is best to sift the flour first to get rid of the larger pieces in the flour. The cake also turns out just fine if you dont.

For an extra fruity cake, at the final mixing step, add in a handful of raspberries or blueberries (or both).

Or for a nutty option, add a handful or two of walnut pieces. OH-SO-YUM!

    Glad you liked it! I haven't tried choc chips yet. I'm too scared I'll like it too much and over-indulge!

    I added a handful of frozen rasberries to the mix (as suggested) and discovered this is the BEST banana cake recipe I have tried. My wife is not a sweet lover, asked for a tiny piece and then asked for more...this is a must cook banana cake recipe. Thanks for sharing it!
