Easy Banana Cake

When I first wanted to learn how to bake, I was looking out for real easy recipes that used only basic ingredients for the cake. I just did not want to spend a "mini fortune" buying all those fancy gadgets and ingredients and only use it once or twice in baking.

I also tried the non-bake cheese cake recipes quite a number of times but they failed terribly. Perhaps I do not know how to dissolve the gelatine properly, hence they dont turn out so "well done". So I stopped trying those because cheese dont really come cheap these days you know.

Moreover, knowing that I am starting from ground zero, I better learn the very basic cakes that we usually enjoy every now and then. Other than the butter cake, I tried baking banana cakes quite a few times then (before I had my blog). It has been a while since I baked it, and so I did it again.

My supply of bananas are usually from my MIL as she uses them for prayers and some for own consumption too. Surely there will be some that are ripening too fast for us to enjoy them fresh, so off they go into my baking tin *hee hee*.



I cannot seem to find the source for the recipe so I shall not post up the recipe here as yet. However, if you are keen to try it, do let me know and I shall work "harder" to find the original recipe :-)

Or if you have a good recipe to share, do let me know. I will be happy to try it too.
