How To Make Banana Bread – Banana Cake

Banana bread is a type of bread that uses yellow bananas as the main ingredient. Unlike traditional breads, this sweet bread that is sometimes referred to as banana cake (although this is a different thing which we will feature soon) uses baking soda as leavening agent instead of yeast.

Try another variant of Banana cake2 by Christine

“My family loves eating this healthy fruit very much, to the point that we can’t live without it everyday. So when bananas are on sale or in season, I’d buy as many as we can consume. Then I’ll reserve some to wait them ripe enough and bake this beautiful and tasty banana cake.”


* 1 1/2 cups plain flour
* 4 ripe bananas
* 1/3 cup butter, melted
* 3/4 cup sugar, white or brown (if you like darker colour, use brown)
* 1 egg, whisked
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 1 tsp baking soda
* 1/8 tsp salt

1. Preheat oven to 175C (350F).

2. Mashed the ripe bananas in a large bowl with a spoon or process in a food processor. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to combine melted butter with the mashed bananas. Stir in sugar, whisked egg and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt in the mixture.

3. Stir in sifted flour, one third at a time. No need to stir too hard, just fold and incorporate all ingredients thoroughly.

4. Transfer mixture into a greased 4×8 inch baking pan. Bake for about 1 hour. Test with a needle. If it comes out clean, the cake is cooked through. Remove from oven and let cool on a rack. Enjoy!

1. If you feel too tired of mashing banana with a spoon, use a food processor. Just process bananas for a few seconds if you’d like to retain some texture.

2. I found it’s better not to use an electric mixer for making banana cake. Use a spoon or whisk just to incorporate all ingredients together without over-stirring. The cake would be turned out really soft.
