Finding Your Ease

Banana cake

Summer time, often as well ‘quickly brown banana time’!
Quick and easy banana cakes can help to get rid of the ‘ugly brown ones’ nobody wants to eat!


I have no idea where I got this recipe from, it is glued into my recipe book, hand written. But all you may need to know is that it is easy, moist and tasty!

Banana cake

125gr butter
150gr fine sugar (I find 100gr enough though)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Melt all three ingredients in a pot. In the meantime:

Beat 1 egg, mash 2 (over) ripe bananas and mix it together.

In another bowl mix the dry ingredients such as 190r flour and 1 teaspoon baking powder.

Then mix the melted butter mix and the egg-banana  mix into the flour mixture. Finally add about 60ml milk for a creamy but not liquid consistency.

You can easily mix this with a wooden spoon, no machine needed!

Pour the mixture into a buttered bread pan.
We usually sprinkle as well some cinnamon-sugar mix on top.
And then bake at 160deg C for approx 35min.
Check with a toothpick that the cake is baked through.

Now – go and get rid of your brown bananas, without throwing them away!

Happy baking and have a nice day
