Quick Banana Cake

My daughter has an excursion tomorrow..her first actually.They are taking her kinder class to the zoo. After going back and forth,we I decided to let her go.S is still not convinced.But anyway,bottom line is she is going.And when I asked her what snack she wanted,she asked for Banana Bread.
S loves it too.. but my only problem with Banana Bread is,how it gets hard and dense on cooling.I wanted it to be soft.So,I started out baking this cake.But as always,I was multi-tasking-making calls,chatting,mixing the batter! The baby cried,I put her back to sleep..Anyway,to cut the long story short,I forgot to add the milk!
And then I waited for the cake to get baked..Can I just tell you,its the softest banana cake I have eaten?And when you have a recipe quite by chance, you should write it down.


1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cup flour
3 ripe bananas(mashed)
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence.

1.Mix oil and sugar and whisk.
2.Add an egg to this and whisk more.Add the essence.
3.Add the mashed bananas and mix well.
4.Add the flour in 3 parts,mixing well.

Bake at 180 deg C(160 fan-forced) for 45 minutes,till the knife comes out clean.
Cut into pieces and store in an air-tight container(if it lasts that long!)

Happy Baking!

  1. Never knew you were such an innovative cook!!! Keep it up Trish!!! And I would agree with you- some hit and misses in following a recipe, and the end result always turns out to be better than the original!!!


  2. Thanks for sharing, Trish! I am curious, do you always use oil for cakes? I have seen butter being used in all the cake recipes, but would be really glad if I can substitute oil.


    1. Hi Affiknity, thanks for commenting:) yes I use oil most of the times..unless I am in a mood for indulgence 🙂 But seriously, oil cakes are really awesome..check out the other cake recipes,I posted ..almost all use oil.:)
