OK I am back after a really long time. Well I went for a 3 months long vacation with my husband and did not bake/cook something nice during that time. We came back a day before yesterday, the house was in a mess but I couldn’t really wait to bake. I wanted to bake something simple since not many ingredients were available at home, so made my favorite and quick banana cake. We both love this cake so I end up baking this more than often. By the way, my kitchen is never a mess when I bake this cake as I prepare the batter in a mixer grinder. Now isn’t that the best thing ever? 😀 Baking acts as a stress buster, but the mess the whole thing creates sure is a nightmare.
So now coming to the ingredients used in the cake, I have tried this cake with both maida and wholewheat flour and they both always turns out perfect. But when using wholewheat flour, you might need to increase the milk amount a little as the batter turns out to be a little thick. Its not necessary though. Totally depends on the quality of flour you are using. I didn’t add extra milk. The batter turns out thick but easy to manage. I always add chocochips to this cake as I love the flavor, you can also add ur choice of dry fruits (walnuts goes well with banana cake). Lets quickly check out the recipe now.
3/4 cup Maida or Wholewheat flour
2 small bananas
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1/3 cup sugar (use 1/2 cup if you prefer more sweet)
a small pinch of salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 or 2 tbsp chocolate chips dusted in flour
Powder the sugar in a mixer, thn add bananas and blend for a few seconds. Make sure the bananas are pureed well. Add milk, oil and vanilla to it. Blend again for a few seconds. Lastly add sifted flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Blend again for a few seconds. Don’t over mix or you get a dense cake. Add some chocochips (if using), mix using a spatula. Pour the batter in a 6 inch greased baking tray and bake in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees for 35 minutes or till the tooth pick comes out clean. Done!!
