Best Banana Cake Recipe

Best. Banana. Cake.

Everybody who has tasted this have asked for the recipe. I don't remember where I got this from cos it was in my archive from a year ago (you see whenever I come across a recipe that I like, I send an email to myself with the subject recipe & back then, I didn't know I was going to be posting this on a blog).

The recipe yields a big loaf or you could pour the extra into a muffin tray which is what I would do the next time.

Eat it in slices, in cubes, with coffee or with ice cream. Enjoy.

Banana Cake

250g butter (X says that's the reason it's so good)
300g sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
4 Tbsp milk
4-5 bananas, mashed
300g flour, sift with 1 tsp bicarbonate soda & 1 tsp baking powder

1. Cream butter & sugar. Add eggs, vanilla essence & milk and mix well.

2. Add mashed banana & mix well. Then add flour & mix.

3. Pour into loaf pan. Bake at 160C for 1-1.5 hour until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes up clean.

4. Cool before slicing & be prepared to fend off greedy fingers and forks.

Yummy, I love banana cake. Though haven't been making it for a while as the last time I was making it too often and everyone got sick of it...haha.

But now that it's getting cold, could be great. I make mine with salted butter because I love salted butter.

Oh really? Got to try, but I never have luck with banana cakes. Maybe this will change my luck.

Sri, let me know if this beats your other 2 recipes. Mei, I'm sure if i use pisang raja this cake will be a knock out! :) can't wait to try, but first must find the pisang raja...

Ladies - I've just made this again & unless someone can show me another one that is better, I'm going with this. I made a loaf & 4 muffins with the recipe.
