Banana Cake

16 September 2010 // Filed under Arts + Culinary + Posts

While all of the recipes I have discovered online describe banana flavored cakes to be "bread", a misattribution if I have ever heard of one, I consider any flour based recipe that uses baking soda/powder to be a cake. As a result, my cake is derived upon the conglomeration of chocolate cake but banana flavored. The recipe speaks for itself.

  • 1 1/2 cup (10 oz) flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup (6oz) sugar
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ripe bananas

Combine flour, salt, and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. In another bowl cream butter and sugar until light, adding eggs individually and whipping well. Mash the bananas (you want just ripe bananas, none of this overripe nonsense which produces soggy cakes) to the desired consistency. In this case I prefer them to be slightly chunky, although they are dissolved in the batter when baking.

Grease a glass dish or other baking pan and bake at 375F for 30 minutes or until testing utensil comes out clean.
