Petite Fleur's Banana Cake Recipe

Petite Fleur's Banana Cake

Hjalmar, one of Baby Boy's best friends is coming for a playdate. This calls for a cake. I have decided to try Petite Fleur's Banana Cake recipe that she posted quite a while ago. Have not forgotten it as you can see. I have a few banana cake recipes of my own, but we all know that there are lots of different banana cakes out there and they are all waiting for us to try them out.

Petite Fleur's Banana Cake :

250g Butter (watch out for the arteries)
300g Sugar
4 Eggs
1 Tsp Vanilla extract
4 Tbsp Milk
4-5 ripe Bananas (mashed)
300g Flour
1 Tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
1 Tsp Baking powder
Dark Chocolate

You will see that this is the kind of recipe that I like - easy and good. Minimum effort.

You start by creaming the butter and sugar together. Then you beat in the eggs, vanilla and milk.

Add the mashed bananas. Fold in the flour that has been sifted with the bicarb and baking powder. I also added dark chocolate pieces because I like it that way.

1st 25 minutes in the oven

Bake for 1-1.5 hours in a hot 160°C oven or till a toothpick comes out clean.

Hub will be upset. Because he just told me this morning that we have to seriously go on a diet. And I baked this moist banana cake which he wouldn't be able to resist.

URGH....I miss baking....I miss cooking. Baking more than cooking cos I've not baked ONE single thing since coming back to Singapore.

Darn I miss this banana cake.

Hey you know that we all bake and cook more or less out of necessity.

Good bakes are within easy reach in Singapore, you have little reason to do anything except work now :-)
