Banana cake

There is nothing better to enjoy a slice of banana cake (maybe more) in a lazy afternoon tea.

I was try to use my new toy (KA mixer) to make this banana cake, but i realized that a simple hand mixer is more convenience when you prepare a small cake like this, hehehe..

Sonia,

I like the golden crust of ur banana cake.

I just wonder why it's not convenient to use a KA mixer for this cake.

Banana cake! I am sure my husband would love it because he really likes banana, same with my bunnies (unfortunately they are not allowed to eat cakes of course with banana or not ;)!)

I like banana cake! I've only tried the steamed version, but I think the baked ones are more fragrant.

The only cake tray I have looks like yours so maybe its a sign I must try this beautiful cake!

busygran said...

How timely for your banana cake to appear and it has a beautiful golden look! Reminds me that I have 4 bananas beginning to over-ripen.

tigerfish said...

I agree about the golden look of your banana cake - no wonder they say banana is some "gold attraction" :p

苏联妈妈 said...

agreed with u...we are not a heavy user most of the time so sometime still think the std size one more convenience . i bought the kenwood mixer is mainly for bread making only. haha

There are some things that is more convenient with the hand held mixer, and it's rather indisposable, even when the stand mixer is around, especially when it comes to beating eggs above hot water or over the stove.

Just like Swee San said, I want to see a slice of the cake, can???? Cos the outside looks so yum.

the lacquer spoon said...

Thanks for the recipe. I can imagine your kitchen was full of the sweet aroma in baking!
