Banana and Vanilla Tea Cake

Use black bananas. In fact, if they turn black, put bananas into freezers to keep for when you're ready to prepare. Once defrosted they will be pulp like and mix into cake batter much more easily giving you a cooked consistency like mud cake. Sometimes requires a little extra time in the oven. Don't panic - just keep testing with a tester and take out when ready. Can be iced with a chocolate ganache. Is delicious once cooled but the flavour really kicks in after 24 hours.

Made it more kid friendly. I used 100g of sugar instead of 185g and it was still as sweet as can be. Better for the kiddies and the grownups. Great recipe!

Altered ingredient amounts. I added about twice the amount of vanilla esscence and it still was really nice!

I stumbled across this recipe when my son asked to make a cake and I only had 125g butter in my fridge. This is so much nicer than the banana bread I usually make and really quick. It was so moist and tasty. This will now be one of our staple cakes in our household. Thanks

Thumbs up! Followed the recipe exactly and found it a delicious way to use up those old 'nanas in the freezer. If you'd rather see the gram measurements in a cup format they are: 1/2 cup butter, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup milk and 1 3/4 cup SR flour.

Made this once as listed - beautiful. Then I doubled the recipe, chucked all ingredients in the mixer together - did not follow steps - to make 2 cakes & forgot to add the milk! Turned out fantastic. No dryness, cakes were moist and tasty. What a surprise for me!
