This Banana Afternoon Treat Will Be Consumed In One Sitting

Easy Banana Cake

I like this cake with banana as it does not use butter. As much as I love butter, the fact remains, it is saturated fat and is full of cholesterol. This cake is made with unsaturated vegetable oil.

Easy Scrumptious Banana Cake

This recipe is from my No Fail Basic Butter Cake recipe with added mashed bananas.

Just Add Prepare
• 7 fl oz/ 200ml sunflower or rice bran oil

• 1 cup sugar

• 4 eggs, beaten

• 1 1/2 cups self raising flour

• 2 ripe banana, mashed

• Preheat oven at 340F/170C

• Pour oil into a mixing bowl. Combine the sugar until the mixture looks thick. This only takes a few minutes

• Add in beaten eggs and combine well

• Add in the mashed banana, combine well

• Fold in flour till the batter is smooth, then pour into a baking "tin". I only ever use silicone non-stick bake-ware.

• Bake in a moderate oven, for 40 minutes till golden brown

• Take it out of the oven immediately and allow to stand for 10 minutes.

• If you are icing or frosting the cake, allow it to cool completely firstly

You'll find this to be a scrumptious cake providing you've used ripe bananas. It's ideal for lunch boxes.

Now, wasn't that easy?...and it's preferable to cook a delicious cake rather than toss out an over ripe banana.


I find using non-stick bakeware saves so much time.

Only ever use very ripe bananas. They have a richer, fuller flavor and are easier to mash.

Vanilla frosting would go very nicely with this cake, if you so choose.

If this banana treat survives your family for more than a day, store it in an airtight container.
