Banana and Pine nuts butter cake 香蕉松子牛油蛋糕


I have quite some time did not bake a butter cake. Since I have overripe bananas sitting on the island top, perfect to make a banana cake. But I also wish to have some bite of nuts in this cake. So I added some pine nuts (leftover from earlier Basmati Rice with Pomegranate Seeds and Pine nuts ). And I love this combination!




Usually I prefer to use pisang emas (banana) for making banana cake as this banana has sweeten flavour which we could use less sugar in the recipe.


Banana and Pine nuts butter cake 香蕉松子牛油蛋糕

75g caster sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature

100g self-raising flour
80g mashed banana
30g pine nuts 

 Method

3. Add egg one at a time, combine well.
4. Add in mashed banana, mix well. Then add in flour and roasted pine nuts, combine well.
5. Pour cake batter into a lined (bottom) round cake pan, smooth the top and tap on countertop to remove air bubbles.
