Easy Banana Cake

9 July 2010, 12:09

I love banana bread. Especially the edges which get nice and toasty when you stick a slice under the grill with some butter oh baby. But I love banana cake too with soft as a pillow banana innards. So usually I make a banana cake recipe and bake it in a loaf haha so much win! Also made a mini bundt cos I have a thing for bundt cakes lol I used this recipe which is awesomely easy and best of all you only use 1 bowl to mix everything in (plus a plate to mash the banana)

Here’s your ingredients: 3 super ripe bananas, 125g butter, ¾ cup brown sugar, 2 eggs, 1½ cups self raising flour, 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda, ¾ cup sour cream and 1 tablespoon milk

Preheat oven to 170C. Whack in your ¾ cup brown sugar and 125g softened butter into a mixer and cream until light and fluffy

While your sugar and butter are mixing, smoosh your bananas and smoosh em good

When sugar and butter are fluffy-fied add in the eggs one at a time scraping sides of the bowl after each egg. Yes I use a Sunbeam. (You are my Sunbeam, my only Sunbeam). Add your smooshed banana and beat till combined.

Add in the 1½ cups sifted self raising flour and 1tsp bicarb with the ¾ cup sour cream and 1 Tbsp milk. Beat until smooth.

Pour mixture into greased pan. Bake at 170C for 1 hour. If you’re making the mini bundt take it out at 30mins, recipe can be used to make 24 muffins- bake for 20mins or until golden.

Mmm hello bundty! So usually I would make cream cheese frosting if I made a banana cake but since I made a loaf I wasn’t keen on making frosting just for the tiny bundt so I uh poured condensed milk haha mmm sweetness

Best part of bundts is that there’s a well of icing in the middle just waiting to ooze out oh baby! Sorry no pic of the loaf i kinda started eating it before remembering to take a photo haha fail



  1. obligatory innuendo regarding condensed milk in cake-depression

    customary appreciative comment of post’s delicious-looking-ness

    potentially-erroneous claim of “first comment”

  2. Fluffified? I like! And I was wondering about that well in the middle of your bundt cake. Now that’s what I call a condensed milk party!

  12. Love the baby bundt banana cake! I also agree about the crunchy munchy edges of banana bread, absolutely the best part. And… if it has banana in it that counts as one piece of fruit for the day yes?

  13. Nom nom nom, this looks tasty and good. And since it has fruit it must be healthy.

  18. Banana cake – great!
    Banana cake covered with condensed milk – inspired!!
    Just a thought – bananas can be frozen, then thawed to use in banana cakes!

  20. Oh man, best banana cake evah!!! Can I admit to being an old duck? My Ma gave me this EXACT recipe in the early 80’s when I first started cooking as a pre-teen. I make it at least once a f/night to put in the kiddies and hubs lunches and for friends. All the love is shared. Cheers.

  21. Nice one, this sounds so delish! You’ve reminded me I have a couple of over ripe bananas in the freezer for a cake just like this!

  22. That bundt cake shot is gorgeous!

    Tina    Jul 12, 09:33 PM    #

  23. That little bundt is SOOO cute! And condensed milk sounds even better than icing, yum.

    shaz    Jul 12, 10:07 PM    #

  24. Hmm, will be trying this out soon…. just waiting for my bananas to ripen. Hm… actually i don’t have any bananas….

  25. The mini bundt cake looks so pretty….I want a bundt pan now! I usually let the mixer ‘mash’ my bannanas too- one less thing to wash!

  28. Duuuude, the words Easy and Cake in the same sentence makes me very happy. And it gives me a legitimate vehicle for my condensed milk addiction, rather than straight from the can :)

  29. Hi! Thanks for the recipe. I made it and it tasted delicous and the whole thing was eaten by my family in one night :)
