Banana Cake Recipe


Over the years as I have tried to bake banana loaf - as it was known to me - I've come to expect a dry, flat result. It had to be rescued by lots of butter. Then I came across this banana cake recipe, and decided to try it. What a difference! A lovely, moist cake, rich in flavour and light in texture. My baking skills had not improved. This recipe is truly foolproof.

Ingredients:
1 cup (250 ml) fine castor sugar
125g softened margarine
2.5 ml vanilla essence
2 eggs
4-5 ripe but firm bananas (depending on size)
2 cups (500 ml) flour
1.25 ml salt
10 ml baking powder
2.5 ml bicarbonate of soda
125 ml milk

Method:
Cream sugar and margarine in an electric mixer until light in colour.
Add the vanilla and mix.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
Mash the bananas and stir into the mixture.
Sift together the dry ingredients and mix into the batter.
Add the milk and beat well.
Line a large bread tin with paper, pour in the batter, and bake at 180°C for 1 hour.
Or use 2 cake tins, and bake at 180°C for 30 min.
Fill and decorate to taste.
