Banana Cake

I was actually planning to make a vanilla sponge cake. My toddler loves Banana a lot. The day happened so that I bought a dozen of Bananas and so did my Husband. What am I supposed to do with so much bananas. The scorching heat would turn them unpalatable in a day or two.

Since I was all set to bake, I planned to use some of them for my cake and make Banana Cake. That is how it happened. The vanilla cake turned to banana cake.


Banana puree- 1 cup (4 bananas)
Maida- 250 gms
Milk- 1 cup
Honey-1/2 cup
Sugar-1 cup
Baking soda-2 tsp
Butter- 1/2 cup


Banana Cake

Banana Cake

  • Sieve maida, powdered sugar and baking soda.
  • Add banana puree, milk, honey, butter and mix well to make a smooth paste.
  • Pre heat oven.
  • Grease a baking pan with parchment paper greased with butter.
  • Pour in the cake batter and bake for 30 min.
  • Prick the centre with a toothpick to check if the cake is cooked.
  • The toothpick comes out clean. 
  • Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
  • Cut into pieces and serve.
Banana Cake
Points to be noted:
  • Bananas need to ripe to use it up.
  • Usage of 4 bananas gave a good banana flavor to the cake.
  • If you want to have vanilla flavor more then reduce the banana's to be added.
  • Banana slices can be added to the base of baking tray for an extra crunch of bananas.

    1. Remya you can very well try it in a pressure cooker. Just put parchment/butter paper in the bottom of the tray. Use sand at the bottom of the pressure cooker. Do not put gasket or weight.
