Banana cake

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!!

  1. The cake looks absolutely yummilichious 😋 I wanted to try Ur recipe and I am a start up baker,so would require your help regarding the measurements of the ingredients in 3/4 cup of flour u have mentioned, if you can let me know them in grams it would be more helpful. Looking forward to hear from you.


    • Hey Priya.. Thank you so much.. I won’t be able to mention how many gms is 3/4 cup because I don’t have any measuring machines at home.. But what I know is 1 cup flour is equal to 120 gms of flour.. Hope this helps.


    • Hi Gowri.. over mixing of batter results in dense cake.. also make sure all the ingredients used are at room temperature.. Also sift the flour, baking soda and baking powder once or twice before adding to the mixer.. hope this helps.
