Super Easy Banana Cake

I got this super easy Banana Cake from Donna Hay -she always inspired me with all her simple recipe-.

Having 'rotten' banana in my pantry was a good excuse to turn it into banana cake -rather than bin it!

So here the recipe:

  •  125g butter, softened
  •  1 cup (220g) caster (superfine) sugar
  •  ¼ cup (45g) brown sugar
  •  3 eggs
  •  2 cups (300g) plain (all-purpose) flour
  •  2 teaspoons baking powder
  •  1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  •  ¾ cup (180g) sour cream
  •  1 cup roughly mashed banana

And this is how:

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). 
  • Place the butter, caster sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until light and creamy. 
  • Gradually add the eggs and beat well. 
  • Sift the flour and baking powder over the mixture. 
  • Add the cinnamon, sour cream and banana and stir to combine.
  • Spoon the mixture into a greased 26cm fluted ring tin.
  • Bake for 40 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. 
  • Cool on a wire rack. 
The original recipe come with extra caramel sauce topped onto this cake once it cooked and place on a wire rack. I skipped this part -just for the sake of saving time- and the cake was huge hit among my children.
I also tried to swap the banana with carrot on other time, with approximately same amount of shredded carrot (about 1cup).
Happy baking :-)
