Back to baking

As you guys might noticed that I haven't been baking too much lately. Too lazy or no inspiration or no time.... whatever lame reasons that I can think of.

Since, we had a bunch of bananas hanging there and absent mindly, I bought another bunch again. So to clear off some before our weekend getaway, I baked Del's One Bowl Banana Bread and Joanne's Banana Cake (fluffy version).

Verdict: Son loved Del's and hubby prefers Joanne's.


What you need:

300g all-purpose flour
170g sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup mashed ripe banana (about 2 medium)
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 180 degree celsius. Coat bottom of Loaf Pan with butter.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a big bowl.

Add remaining ingredients; stir till all ingredients are moistened.

Pour batter into Loaf Pan.

Bake @ 60 mins or until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean.

Remove from oven to cooling rack; cool for 10 min.

Loosen sides of loaf from pan; remove from pan.


What you need

170g butter
170g castor sugar
2 eggs, large
3 tbsp milk
3 large banana
240g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate soda


Cream butter & sugar

Add eggs, one at a time and beat well

Add milk and banana, mix well

Sift flour, baking powder & bicarbonate soda and add to mixture

Bake at 180 degree celsius for 1 hr
