Banana Cake

Most times I used the ready in 20mins packs and got good compliments for it :-). My first attempt to bake a cake from scratch and I'm happy with how it turned. To add to the list of first time stuff... I got a slight burn on my arm, so first time bakers be very very very careful and watch the oven corners while you place\work with the dish.



Ingredients :-

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 3-5 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp coffee powder (optional)
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 -2 tsp baking soda
  • 3-4 tsp milk powder
  • pinch salt
  • all the dry fruits what you can find at home!!!

Method:-
  1. Mash bananas and mix with oil, butter, honey and sugar.
  2. To this add flour, baking soda and a pinch of salt.
  3. Next add coffee powder, i used this to reduce the smell of banana and to sell my cake to those who cannot stand ripe bananas :-)
  4. Add milk powder.
  5. Finally add crushed dry fruits (I used almonds, raisins, cashew, walnuts).
  6. Pre-heat over to 350 degrees.
  7. Line a oven safe dish with aluminium foil and pour the mixture.
  8. Place in pre-heated oven for 15-20 mins.
  9. Keep checking for brown baked color.
  10. Use a tooth pick to test if core of cake is done.
  11. Serve warm with coffee or top with some whipped cream!!!
