Yesterday I got some Sugar Bananas really cheap ($2.00 a bunch) and today Mr G decided to make Banana Cake whilst I was at work. I got this recipe in the 80’s from my friend Tina N. The cake is really nice and moist and not to mention rich. Why wouldn’t it be when it has condensed milk in it. Well, here it is, Banana Cake made by Mr G.
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter (around 225g butter)
4 eggs - separated
2 cups self raising flour
1 heaped tsp baking powder
1 heaped tsp baking soda
4 large bananas or 7 small bananas
1/3 cup condensed milk
2 drops banana essence (can be purchased from Asian grocers)
Preheat oven to 160°c. Line large square tin with baking paper and lightly grease with butter.
Sift flour, baking powder and baking soda together. Set aside.
Grind bananas with condensed milk. Set aside.
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg yolks only. Continue beating.
Add in banana mixture, then gradually add in flour.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until fluffy and stiff peaks are formed. Gently FOLD this into the cake mixture. Add in banana essence.
Pour into prepared tin and bake for around 40 to 50 mins. Cover top with foil after 20 mins to ensure even cooking.
