Spongy Banana Cake

This is a very spongy, light and fluffy banana cake which is much lighter than butter cake. Furthermore this recipe don't need egg separation, just using simple sponge cake method. This is a recipe that I going to make again and again.

The texture of youyr cake is so so so nice, you make me feel like making this cake straightaway.

I'd like to check with you the siciian orange cake you made earlier, is the cake overly sweet with 200g of sugar?

Wishing you Happy Mother's Day in advance!

Perfect banana loaf!

Quay Po Cooks said...

Sonia, use Pisang Raja and your banana cake will be even more flavorful and the fragance emitted from the baking is out of this world. Whenever I get hold of Pisang Raja, I will bake banana cake. It is mine and Nick's favorite. Unfortunately it is very hard to get Pisang Raja. Try using some sour cream to make the cake even more light and fluffy.

Quay Po Cooks said...

Oh, I mean to wish you Happy Mother's Day and I forgot. Have a blast on Mother's day and pamper yourself for you well deserve it!! HUGZZZ!!

what is the difference between baking powder and baking soda? is it the vanilla Rum that makes it spongy?

燕@yen said...

Hi wen!
Can I substitute the cake flour with self-raising flour and omit both the baking powder and soda ? Thanks :)
