Banana Cake

Banana cake is not my favorite but since I have plenty of bananas in the fridge and they are quite over ripe, I have to make something out of it. It is made of basic butter cake recipe and added freshly mashed banana to add flavor.

4 ripe bananas (mashed)
2 ½ cup all purpose flour (sifted)
1 cup sugar (sifted)
½ cup butter
2 eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 cup milk
Pinch of salt


Preheat oven at 350 o C. Grease a round pan (preferably with fake bottom) with oil.

Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In a separate mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one by one, mixing after each addition, continue mixing until mixture becomes light and fluffy. Add alternately flour and milk, mixing after each addition. Continue beating until mixture becomes thick. Add mashed bananas. Mix thoroughly and pour the cake mixture into the prepared pan. Lower oven temperature to 200 o C. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Serve with chocolate syrup. To get the appearance in the picture, drizzle the syrup rapidly over a plate of sliced banana cake in a steady stream, creating a zigzag pattern.
