Banana Cake Recipe


Banana is abundant in Fiji and is enjoyed eaten fresh or cooked as dessert or Indian sweet. We also have really taste bananas in Australia which is available throughout the year. I use banana to make Gulgula (doughnut) and banana cake. Here is my very easy version of Banana cake recipe. This is very easy to make and you don’t have to use the mixer or an electric beater to mix the cake batter.

Banana Cake Recipe


2 mashed ripe bananas
1 1/2 cup self-raising or plain flour
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
50 gm butter
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp baking powder (only use if using plain flour)
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
1 tsp Powdered Nutmeg
1 tsp Powdered Cinnamon
1 greased round cake tin


In a big bowl add mashed ripe bananas, to this add 3 eggs, sugar and melted butter. Mix all gently for 5 mins. In this add baking powder (remember only to use with the plain flour), vanilla essence, powdered nutmeg and cinnamon. Mix everything together. Now gradually add the flour and mix it thoroughly. Make sure that it has been mixed well and there are no hard flour lumps in the mixture. Once the mixture is properly mixed, set it aside and grease your cake tin with some melted butter. Pour the cake mixture into the greased tin. Heat your oven to 180 degrees, (remember to adjust the oven temperature if you have fan forced oven, fan forced oven temperature should be around 160 degrees) once the oven is hot, bake your cake in it for 35-45 mins. Test your cake to see if it is cooked by inserting a satay stick or a butter knife right in the middle of the cake. Pull the stick or knife out, if the cake is done there should not be any residue on it. If the cake is uncooked there will be a soft liquish residue on the stick or knife. Let it cook for further few mins. I let the cake become golden brown before taking it out of the oven. Once the cake is baked, take it out and let it cool before serving it to your guest or to yourself.

Enjoy baking.
