Moist Banana Cake Recipe

4 over rip bananas
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 180C (356 degrees Fahrenheit). Mash the bananas. Add the oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla and whisk well. Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into the bowl and stir until just combined. Pour into a round 8″ cake tin, lined with baking paper and bake for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Caramilk chocolate ganache
450g (15.87 ounces) Caramilk chocolate
160mL (5.41 fluid ounces) cream (at least 30% fat)

Break the chocolate into pieces in a bowl and pour over the cream. Microwave for 1 minute, stir well then microwave for additional 30 second bursts, stirring in between, until the chocolate is melted. Whisk until you have a smooth, homogenous mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and leave at room temperature over night. Or if you are in a hurry place in a ziplock bag, flatten and put in the freezer for 1 hour. Whip with electric beaters.

    I have to tell you that i admire your baking skills. I was wondering if i can make this ganache and wisk it with the regular chocolate? I usually use 50% dark chocolate in my cakes. And i melt it over the steam. I need frosting for piping on the cake.
    Thank you

    Does the recipe for “Moist Banana Cake” make two layers? Or does one need to double the ingredients for two 8″ round tins?

    • When I made this, it barely covered the bottoms of two 9″ tin, so it must be for a single tin… although that single tin is VERY full.

      • Tracy, if you go to 1:50 in the video, she’s pouring into 2 cake pans, and it looks to be about half full. Then in the recipe above she ‘s using 8 inch pans, not 9 inch which you used. There’s a considerable volume difference in a 9 vs 8 inch pans. Cake pan sizes can be *very* important as it’s the actual volume that you need to compare. To get the equivalent size in a different shaped pan, eg a loaf pan, pour water into one pan & then transfer to the other pan & compare the 2.

    Hi Ann,
    I’m in the uk, so ingredients are weighed on the scales, rather than measuring in cups.
    Is it possible to convert your recipes using grams/ounces ?
    Many thanks
