Banana Coffee Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I baked this cake for hubby on his Birthday 3 weeks ago.I almost forget to post this entry..Well, as they said better late than never,right? I mixed half of the flour with cake flour and the other half with all purpose flour.And the outcome of the cake texture is really soft and fine.Since I have few ripe banana on the counter I might as well use it to make the cake more favourable and pretty..Well,I like to icing decorate the cake I baked even though it's not professional decoration but I still like to try and practise with the pipping to make myself better in future . Hope you like it:) Enjoy!!









Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 eggs ,separated,at room temperature
1 cup un-salted butter,room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
2 tsp instant coffee + 2 tbsp warm water
4-5 ripe banana,sliced







Method:

1:Preheat oven to 350 F.Line 2 pans 8 x 8 x 2 inch round baking pan with parchment paper.
2:In a medium size bowl,sift together the flour,baking powder and salt.Set aside.
3:Beat egg yolks and instant coffee lightly in a small bowl,about 1 minute. Cream butter eggs and sugar in a mixer until fluffy and frothy,about 2-3 minutes.Add the egg yolk.Add the dry ingredients in two parts,alternating with the milk.
4:In a separate bowl ,on the high speed of an electric mixer,beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.Gently fold the egg whites into the batter.Batter will be thick and dough like.
5:Pour the batter into prepared pans.Bake 40-45 minutes or until a cake tester comes out with moist crumbs attached.Do not over bake.Allow to cool for 20 minutes before icing and decorate with sliced banana.
