Here’s another kitchen experiment. I was looking for the easiest way to bake banana cake and I found this on the net. Yes, it was easy enough and the smooth texture of the cake and the yummy taste makes me want to do more…with nuts if possible.  Here’s a list of what you will need:

125 grams butter

3/4 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla essence

1 egg

3 ripe medium-size bananas, mashed

1 1/2 cups self-rising flour ( you can use all-purpose flour for this and the ratio is: 1 tsp baking powder + 1/4 ts. salt to 1 cup of all-purpose flour)

1/4 cup milk

1 tsp. cinnamon powder (this is optional but I love cinnamon)

Melt the butter, sugar and vanilla in a medium-sized saucepan. Remove from heat. Add mashed bananas and stir through until just blended. Add egg and mix in well. Stir in flour, cinnamon powder then add milk and mix lightly. Bake at 170 C for about 40 to 50 minutes depending on the baking pan you’re going to use.  Let cool and slice.
