Banana cake

27 Jun

Dad found a recipe on a newspaper on Banana cake
and since he can start eating fruits and vege now
I decided to make it for him! (:

Ingredients needed :
130g butter
200g sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed bananas ( about two large bananas or three medium )
250g plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
120ml buttermilk
120g chopped walnuts ( optional )

1) Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 20cm baking tin and set aside. Sift the dry ingredients once through into a bowl.

2) Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and creamy.

3) Beat in 1 egg until all all is mixed in.

4) Then add the other egg and a bit of the sifted flour into the bowl so that the mixture doesn’t curdle.

5) Fold in the flour mixture alternating with the buttermilk. ( Do it in two batches, and remember to start and end with the flour mixture )
Fold until all the flour mixture is just fully combined and the mixture is smooth.

6) Add in the mashed bananas until fully combined.

7) Turn the mixture into the baking pan and
bake it for about 45 minutes or until the skewer that is inserted into the cake comes out clean.
( for the last 20 minutes, cover the top of the baking pan with an aluminium foil so that the top of the cake won’t burn )
