Banana Marble Cake
Finally I got the opportunity again to use my baking equipments. And this is for the first time in beginning of new year 2009.
I'm actually still lazy to bake something, but because I have overripe bananas and that is too bad to be thrown away and I know that from overripe bananas I can make something delicious. So I force myself to bake again...:o)
Most of the banana cake which I know is banana bread. I've been googling to find other recipes besides banana bread but it's quite rare to find that fits to my requirements. Because I want to make a moist and with light texture of the cake, then I try to combine using butter cake recipe and add with mashed bananas, and it works greatly. The cake turns so soft, moist and looks so beautiful with the marble look.
Here I'm sharing it with you...
250 gr soft butter
200 gr sugar
250 self-raising flour; sifted
3-4 tablespoons milk
3 overripe banana, mashed
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1. Preheat oven to 190°C.
2. In a bowl, beat the butter and sugar until soft and fluffy.
3. Add the eggs, mix well. Then add the mashed bananas.
4. Add the flour, mix well. Pour into a 20x20 cm pan. Leave some to be added with cacao powder to make the marble textures.
5. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven.
