Banana cake | Kukskitchen

Left over bananas have turned black... not sure what to do with them. I have got the perfect recipe for a banana cake that melts in your mouth..... one of the easiest cakes you can make... delivers the same gorgeous result each time.

I used my banana muffin recipe to make the cake. Bake them for an hour at 170 degrees in a fan assisted oven and VOILA your gorgeous banana cake is ready to serve. They are great served warm with a cup of tea.

A few things before we start:

  • About three medium bananas would be perfect for this recipe.
  • The recipe warrants yellow cavendish bananas, the usual ones you get in supermarket, but if you can't get it 'robusta' green bananas are great too.
  • Whilst mashing bananas, a few chunks are ok, they add texture to the cake.
  • Mix in the flour gently to the wet mix. Never use a hard hand or you will end up with a banana flavoured stone.

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
