Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Set oven to 180 degrees or 160 for fan forced. Prepare muffin tins with cases or grease a 26cm ring tin or equivalent. 

    Put sugar into bowl & mill 10 secs, sp 10. Set aside. 

    Put the flour, baking powder, salt & bicarb into bowl & mix 15secs, sp5. Set aside 

    Put bananas into bowl & purée 15secs, sp8. 

    Add the sugar & eggs 30secs, sp5. 

    Add butter 30secs, sp5.

    Add buttermilk & vanilla extract & turbo .5 secs 2-3 times just to mix them in.

    Add the flour & turbo .5 secs 4 times. Scraping down the sides in between. Again to just mix in. Don't over do or cake will be tough. 

    Fill cases or cake tin with mixture.

    I found as cupcakes the mixture did rise a lot so fill cases to about 3/4 to allow room to rise.

    Bake for about 20mins for cupcakes or 30-35 mins for a cake or until a fine skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. 

    If doing a cake cool in tin for about 5-10 mins. Loosen edges with butter knife & cool on a rack. 

     

    To make icing put cream cheese & butter into bowl 15secs sp5. Add icing sugar & vanilla extract 1min sp8 or until smooth.

Tip

This can be made as cupcakes or whole cake.

It's an extremely soft & moist cake.

I found as cupcakes the mixture did rise a lot so fill cases to about 3/4 to allow room to rise.

As a cake 12 portions is a guess but it's a very generous cake so would serve more for sure.
