Asian Banana Cake

"This cake specifically only uses a banana called "pisang mas"...I do not know how it will turn out if you use other bananas though...200g is the weight of the bananas WITHOUT the skin on em."

Ready In:
24 pieces


  • 135 g flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 125 g sugar
  • 18 teaspoon banana flavoring
  • 65 ml corn oil
  • 200 g mashed bananas


  • Preheat oven to 360°F; line a 9x5 inch loaf pan entirely.
  • Whisk flour and baking powder together in a bowl and set aside.
  • Beat eggs and sugar till very, very light and creamy. Pour in mashed bananas and continue beating with electric mixer till very thick. I usually beat it for 10 minutes. It is essential to mix it well.
  • Using a hand whisk, mix in the flour mixture till everything is nice and homogenous.
  • Next, fold in the banana essence and oil and mix well.
  • Pour into your prepared pan and bake for around 35 - 40 minutes. Do check at 35 minutes, in case your oven is faster than mine!

my flickr page: Hey there! Thanks for stopping by to look @ my profile :) I'll be 15 on the 11th of September 2006....Ive been using Zaar for quite a while now and I've made tons of friends so far...... I started cooking when I was umm....12 and a half and Ive been in love with it ever since...My first project was the classic batch of brownies. I used a pan that was too big and I got really really flat brownies.....For the frosting I used granulated sugar and had crunchy frosting haha..... Ive gotten much better since then! I tend to get discouraged very easily if something I make does not come out like it was expected to....I can even get depressed over it..... I have plans on going to Le Courdon Bleu Sydney in mid 2008 and completing the Grand Diploma there...... This is my cat Kiara. I found her in the backyard when I was 10, and I started feeding her toast and grape jelly. She's on a normal cat's diet now haha. <img src="" alt="Image hosting by Photobucket"> This is Pluto, and sadly he went missing just before Christmas.... <img src="" alt="Image hosting by Photobucket"> The small pic is when I was 4, and the other is a recent pic :) <img src="" alt="Image hosting by Photobucket"> <img src="" alt="Image hosting by Photobucket"> Lookin a bit mad...hehe
