This morning, I came across a bunch of really ripe bananas at the fruit stall. Since I'm going back to my parent's house for dinner, I should make banana cake.
I wasn't prepared to dig out my cake mixer and digital weighing scale from the pantry, so I picked the easiest fool-proof recipe that I could handle. The best thing is, it doesn't leave a mess in the kitchen. Here it is:
3 cups self raising floor
1.5 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs (beaten)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
5 ripe bananas
Melt butter in a pan. Stir in sugar and vanilla essence.
Remove from heat.
Mash 4 bananas and add into the butter mixture. Stir well.
Stir in eggs.
Add flour and milk. Mix lightly.
Note: Since I had the pack of chopped almonds (about 1/2 cup), I added into the batter as well.
Pour cake batter into baking pan. Decorate the top with sliced bananas. Bake in preheated oven at 170 degree celcius for 40 minutes.
Moist and soft banana cake!
