The banana I bought during sales in Walmart are getting too ripe, and I got tired of making milkshake out of it, so I came up with the idea to bake a banana cake.
I have chosen this recipe for it call for lesser butter, thus lesser calories, and yet equally tasty!
3 ripe large banana or 1 1/2 cups of mashed banana
2 1/4 cups All-purpose flour
1 cup Brown sugar
2/3 cup mixed nuts （chopped）
1/4 cup Black and white sesame seeds （mixed）
1/4 cup low fat milk
1/2 cup or 1 stick of Butter
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
2 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp salt (if using salted butter, omit this or reduced to half)
Mashed banana, and mix with vanilla essence. Sift flour and blend well with salt, baking soda and baking powder.
In a Stand Mixer/Hand Mixer beat Butter（room temperature）and sugar until smooth or a little like ice cream in texture.
Now add one egg at a time, beat until fluffy, and add another egg, repeat for all 3 eggs.
Mix in the flour slowly in batches, add milk and mashed banana in between, continue beating at high speed until the batter looks fluffy.
Mix in the chopped nuts and sesames at the end.
Pre-heat oven to 360F (180C).
Lightly butter and floured a 9 inches baking pan, transfer batter to the pan, shake a little to even the batter.
Bake cake for 45-50 minutes, test with a bamboo stick, if the stick come out clean, it is done. Cool completely before serving.
Good Choice for teatime!
