Number 1 son is celebrating a birthday. Again, I was open to the idea of making a fancy cake but Number 1 requested...banana cake. Who knew it was his favourite?
It is all about the taste rather than the aesthetics with this boy.
Banana cake done badly can turn you off; when done correctly it is all you could ever desire in a cake (according to Number 1). It is light, it is fragrant and it is delicious.
So, here is my Tahitian* Banana Cake recipe. It is really simple to make.
1 cup caster sugar
2 tbsp softened butter
4 tbsp milk
Dash of vanilla extract (or half a vanilla bean)
3 eggs separated
4 or 5 very ripe mashed bananas (makes 1 Cup approx)
1 cup of self-raising flour
1 tbsp bicarbonate soda
