BANANA CAKE
Recipe credit – Richard Goh
shared by – Connie Goh

Ingredients :

3 eggs
125g brown sugar
200g banana (cut into cubes)
150g cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
100g corn oil
1/4 tsp salt – my addition

Methods:
1) Preheat oven to 160C.
2) Line a 8″ round pan or 7 ” square pan with baking paper. (I doubled up the ingredients and bake in a bundt and 4 cupcakes liners)
3) Sieve cake flour, baking powder and baking soda together.
4) Use an electric stand mixer to whisk eggs, brown sugar and banana till ribbon stage. It took me about 10 minutes on speed 5 and another 2 mins on speed 6 then lower to speed 2 for 1 min. (mixer model: K-Mix Kenwood).  i did use an immersion blender to break up the bananas first.
5) Fold in the flour using a hand whisk and mix well. Don’t over mix.
6) Add oil into 1/3 of the batter in a separate bowl and mix well before adding to the rest of the batter. Mix until glossy.
7) Fill prepared baking pan with batter and bake for 40-45 mins or until skewer inserted and comes out clean.

Note to self: 4 cupcakes baked in halogen at 150C for 30 mins. Bundt cake in Smeg Oven at 150C for 50 minutes.

    Jeannie can ask I made tis but first step when I whisk the egg sugar n banana it didn’t really become ribbon stage leh… it’s looks like the texture but it’s like dripping in lumps.. (maybe due to the banana…?) n the cake will raise n collapses? cos mine did not rise.. end result still soft n all.. but jus feel somehow somewhere not correct…😦

      try blending your bananas with some eggs first then pour into the mixer and beat at high speed for at least 12-15 minutes. Must be very thick ya

    Jeannie, I have tried this recipe. Everything is good except mine texture is dense and not fluffy. How many batches off flour did you pour into the dough? Did you pour all the oil at once or did you do it in batches?

      Hi Angie, you have to be very gentle with the mixing of the flour, so as many times as you can is better than 2-3 batches. SIFT in the flour and fold with a HAND whisk or spatula. To mix the oil, take a few scoops of batter and mix with the oil really well, then scoop a bit more to lighten the oil batter, before pouring into the main batter, gently from the side of the bowl. Mix with spatula, scooping from bottom and fold up.
