Buttery Moist Banana Cake

I think all of us at some time or another, accumulate way too many RIPE bananas somewhere in the kitchen. Well, that just happened to us and I decided to bake this family favourite which I had not in YEARS!!

This is an easy and yummy recipe, the cake is rich yet moist and soft! I used the paper loaves which I bought from Daiso that came in a set of 3. In less than 30mins coming out of the oven, 1 loaf was GONE! Mostly devoured by hb and Kimi. I was a happy mummy & baker! :)

Cat, here goes my 'secret recipe' as you call it! Haha! No secret lah.. u so drama! :)

Recipe (makes 3 smallish paper loaves which I bought from Daiso OR 1 9" round)
  • 260g self-raising flour
  • 220g caster/fine sugar
  • 180g butter
  • 260g banana
  • 4 eggs
  • 30ml milk
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence


  1. Preheat oven at 170 degrees celsius
  2. Mash banana and stir into milk, set aside
  3. Cream butter and sugar at medium speed till light abd fluffy.
  4. Add 1 egg at a time till combined **
  5. Add essence
  6. Fold in sifted flour and soda till combined
  7. Pour into desired tins/moulds and bake for 60 to 70mins or until pick comes out clean


** As this is a high fat cake, when adding the eggs, sometimes it may curdle. On the 1st sighting of the mixture curdling, add in 1 tsp of the pre-sifted flour and continue till all the eggs are added. Adding of a little flour helps to stop the curdling.

Adjust timing according to size of baking tins. Lesser time for smaller moulds, etc
