banana cake

Banana cake without all the kitchen utensils. All you need is 2 bowls and you can leave your kitchen machine in the cupboard.  I am so used to creaming my butter and sugar first together, then subsequently the rest of the ingredients. The Asian banana cake I know does not usually have any nuts in it, but I loved having nuts and chocolate chips together. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 cups sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1/2 cup butter (melted and cooled)
1 tsp Vanille essence
1/2 cup chopped walnuts and almonds (optional)
3 ripe large banana s (mashed with a fork)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
dash cinnamon powder

Method:

1. Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl (i.e. flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, nuts, chocolate chips)

2.  Mix all the wet ingredients in a bowl (i.e. eggs, butter,banana) Whisk it up.

3. Incorporate both dry and wet ingredients together using a rubber spatula or a wooden ladle, until the batter is nicely mixed together.
Pour the dough in a pre-buttered loaf pan

4. Bake at 200°c (upper and lower heat) for 60 mins. (After 45 mins lowered the heat to 170°c)

5. Tastes best the next day, once it gets more moist, perhaps with a layer of butter on top. The cake can be stored at room temperatures for up till 7 days, or deep freeze.
