Banana - Cinnamon Cake

Let me tell you something about me: I love ripe mangoes but I don't drink mango juice.  I like grapes but despise grape juice.  I am fond of pineapple juice, but not the fruit, unless it's from the can.  I like bananas (fruit) and milk but NEVER a banana shake

You know what my friends tell me when they discover this truth? In blinking lights and in bold letters - "YOU ARE WEIRD!"

Am I?

Here is another fact about yours truly - I am not a fan of banana cakes or banana bread..."So why did you bake this cake in the first place?" Maybe, I am really weird *wink* No, seriously, reason behind is because 'B' loves banana cake and my friends are begging me to make one.  When it comes to them, I am weak.  But only when they beg. Ahaha! Just kidding! I just love them so.

This recipe is so simple and I must  admit, I like the outcome.  It's dense, moist and creamy.  Best served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (though I don't have one when I made this). 

Print this Recipe

1 and 1/4 cup cake flour
1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup mashed ripe (or overripe) bananas
1/2 cup whole milk

Preheat oven to 150C.

In a mixing bowl, cream together sugar and butter.  Mix well.

Add egg, and mix until well blended. Add in mashed bananas and milk.  Mix well. Set aside.

In a separate mixing bowl, combine all remaining dry ingredients.

Gently combine the dry ingredients to the wet mixture.  Mix well.

Pour mixture in a greased 9" pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.

Let cool, slice and serve.
