Easiest Banana Cake Ever!

Well I don’t normally post about food or recipes…but this morning I made a banana cake that was too easy not to share!

I did wait for it to have cooled and tried it out to be sure it was worthy before sharing!  I am not a big icing fan (sorry!!!  I know many people LOVE icing!) but I do have a thing for a dusting of icing sugar on top ♥

This cake is made in a food processor, that is why it is sooo easy!

I would love to give credit to it’s creator but I have no idea where it came from.  I found my hand written recipe in my recipe folder named only Banana Cake.  I have had a good google to try and find the author without any success.  If you do know or stumble across the original recipe let me know and I would love to give credit where it is due!!!  Here is the recipe,

Recipe

Preheat Oven First!  150ºC (300ºF) The recipe is that quick!

  • 2 Large Bananas (no need to mash yay!)
  • 1 1/2 (192g) Cups of Flour
  • 2 Teaspoons (8g) Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon (8g) Baking Soda
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3/4 (165g*) Cup Soft Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 (125ml) Cup of Oil ( I used Canola but any mild flavoured vegetable oil will do)

*this weight is for packed I did not pack mine so you may want to reduce a little.  I used this converter to add the weights.

Method

Put EVERYTHING in the food processor and mix together.  I like to use the pulse setting, I guess like most cakes it pays not to over mix.  So don’t turn it on and leave it mixing for a few minutes!

Pour into lightly oiled ring tin (mine is a Wiltshire Classic Bake 220mm Ring Tin – on special for $15 at The Warehouse if you were wondering!)

Bake in the middle of the oven for 30 minutes.  The recipe called for 40 minutes but must have been using a standard tin.  I used a skewer to check if it was cooked all the way through.  It also sprang back when lightly pressed.

Place on cooling rack, I did this pretty much straight away.

I love the crack on the top it give it that rustic appeal.  You can always ice over it once it cools if you feel the need!

Check out my dandy cover!  My MIL made this for me out of net curtain fabric and decorated it using Tri-Chem paints.  So great for letting the steam out while still keeping it safe.  Also gets a lot of use when we have a BBQ, keeps the flies of the food!

If like me you are not an icing fan (sorry kids & Robert!) then you can dust it with icing sugar for that finishing touch.  That being said it is not an overly sweet cake to would handle icing very well Winking smile

It is lovely and light not to dense and definitely not dry.  I’m loving the banana coloured knife!  Just seems so appropriate!
