I'm so happy because the price of bananas has FINALLY gone down! Now less than 2 dollars =D That means ...... more BANANAS! our fruitbowl is now whole again =) My craving of bananas was finally satisfied. This also means that all the banana recipes that I had kept could be used =D
So first up is BANANA cake! First time I have used this recipe. It's quite moist and dense but full of banana flavour!.. and don't forget! really simple~ 
Adapted from Exclusively Food.

125g butter, softened 
330g (1 1/2 cups) sugar - I used brown sugar
280g (1 very slightly rounded cup) very ripe, mashed banana - around 2 bananas
1 teaspoon natural vanilla essence
2 large eggs 
100ml milk
225g (1 1/2 cups) self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

1. Preheat oven to 160oC. Grease cake tin and line with baking paper.
2.Place butter, sugar, banana, vanilla and eggs in a food processor (or large bowl and beat with electric mixer). Process for ~2 minutes. Add milk and pulse to combine.
3. Add sifted flour and bicarb soda and mix until combined.
4. Pour batter into cake tin and bake for around 50-60 minutes or until skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
5. Leave cake to cool on a wire rack. Once cool, spread cream cheese frosting and decorate with banana pieces.

So what are you waiting for?? GO BANANASSSS~~~ @_@ :D


  1. Oh, there are so many things I approve about this recipe- bananas, cream cheese frosting, using brown sugar... yum! Thankfully bananas are wonderfully cheap in Malaysia, and there are banana plants all around our house :)

  2. So can you just pick the bananas off the tree for free? that is so cool! ^_^ yeah bananas are such a good fruit to work with! Hopefully there will be more banana recipes to come :D
