Easy Peasy Banana Cake Recipe

My dear taiwanese neighbor gave me a bunch of bananas 2 days ago. It was the freshest and sweetest i've ever eaten! Perhaps it is because they home-grown in their backyard and ripe on the tree. Unlike those that we bought from the supermarket, which has yet to ripe upon harvesting. (I assumed it. Haha.)

There were a total 14 bananas, but both my husband and I were unable to finish them. My solution is to bake banana cakes.

Some limitations to consider:
1. I do not have an electric mixer.
2. I do not have vanilla or banana essence.
3. I do not have baking power.
4. I do not have a proper mixing bowl.

It is difficult for me to get these items in my small town here. Although i have already ordered an electric mixer online. HAHAHAHA! (Can't wait for it arrival! Horray!)

Below are my steps to bake a very easy banana cake (Which you do not need those stuff that are mentioned above)

Easy Peasy Banana Cake Recipe
Preparation and Baking time (90 Mins)

Ingredients that you will need:

1/3 Cup of Butter (Melted and left to cool)
5 Medium Bananas (Squashed)
1/2 Cup of Sugar
1 Egg (Mix)
1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
A Pinch of Salt
1 1/2 Cup of Plain Flour
1/2 Cup of Milk


Squashed the bananas.

Add the bananas, butter, sugar and egg into the mixture and mix it.

Add the baking soda and salt into the mixture and mix it.

Add 1/2 of the plain flour into the mixture and fold it. (Repeat one more time for the another 1/2 of the plain flour).

Add Milk into the mixture and mix it.

Preheat the oven at 175 degrees.

Pour the batter into a grease pan and bake for 60mins.

Only fill 3/4 of the pan with batter!

After 60mins, insert a toothpick into the center of the cake and ensure that it comes out clean and dry.

Remove the cake from the oven and set it to cool on a rack for 15mins.

Remove the cake from the pan and set it to complete cool down on a rack before slicing.

Placing the to-be-cut cake on the measurement cutting board that I bought from a dollar store.

Tada! Here is my Easy Peasy Banana Cake!
