Banana Cake

I have a bunch of over-ripe banana been sitting on the table for over a week but have no idea what to do with it anymore.I bought 2 bunch of banana on sale for $0.39 a pound..As usual my eyes is bigger then my tummy..The banana color change from pretty yellow color to black dot on the skin before turn to totally black on the whole skin.At last I decided to bake some banana cake .Finding for a good banana cake recipe is not easy..Mostly all the banana cake recipe out there used all purpose flour but I found a banana cake recipe that used cake flour !! This recipe not only use baking powder but baking soda as well..yea... I'm a sucker for cake flour when comes to baking cake! I would like to give the recipe a try since I never bake any banana cake using both baking agents..I adapted the recipe from LilyNg .I always admire her simple and easy method of cooking and baking. ..Instead of using bread pan I take this opportunity to use my new non-stick bundt pan.Too bad I spray too much butter on it bcoz I thought it's my first time using the pan,I afraid the pan won't release the cake easy .(knock my head now,didn't realise it's non-stick pan) I also omit using walnut or any nuts..Overall this banana cake is extra spongy and full with banana flavor!!

Adapted Recipe from here!!


200g cake flour

3/4 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp baking soda

50g unsalted butter at room temperature

25ml corn oil

100g sugar

2 eggs lightly beaten

210g banana puree with 10ml lemon juice ( I just chopped up the banana since it's really mushy)

60ml milk

A pinch of salt

A drop of banana essence

60g walnuts (optional)


1:Sieve flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

2:Cream butter, corn oil and sugar till smooth and creamy.

3:Add in the lightly beaten eggs 1/4 at a time till well blended.

4:Add in the banana puree and the essence.

5:Add in the 1/3 of the sieved flour and half the milk. Repeat and end with the last third of the sieved flour..

6:Stir in the walnuts if you are using.

7:Bake in a lined loaf pan or 2 small lined loaf pans at a preheated oven of 350F for 45 - 60 minutes .(I used non-stick bundt pan)
