Soft and Moist Banana Cake - Banana Baking Addiction Relapsed!


Baking. I was a phobic turned a junkie. A discriminative junkie, though. I have this thing about banana baked goods, I am an addict and I think I know why. Banana baked goods are very forgiving for an novice idiotic baker like me. There was a period of time when all I baked were bananas, bananas and more bananas, I pretty much turned myself and my readers into glorified, highly educated, computer using, banana baked goods chomping monkeys.


Feeling rather bad, I went into banana baked goods rehab and tried my very best not to do any banana baked goods for a while. I've been quite a good girl, experimenting with other baked goods (namely chocolate), but you and I knew that this addiction is bound to relapse. So, 4 months, 2 weeks, and 3 days (not that I am counting or anything) after I swore off banana baked goods, here I am again....posting about another banana baked goods. HAHAHA! My monkeys (you know who you are), let's go!

Soft and Moist Banana Cake

Recipe
(modified from Homemade Dessert Recipes)
- 1/2 cup butter (softened)
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups flour (sifted)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1.5 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 beaten egg
- 1/2 cup yoghurt
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup mashed ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350C. Cream 1/2 cup softened butter, add sugar, beat until fluffy (I used hand mixer), add beaten egg, add mashed bananas, mix well. Add flour by batch, I divided into 3 batches, add yoghurt and vanilla, mix well. Pour into a lightly greased loaf pan and bake for around 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Ohhhhh, it feels sooo good to be badddd....

I like your blog design very much. It is quite artistic. For the cake, try using coffee flavored yogurt. It will add a depth of flavor and richness to it. I originally came from Hong Kong. Will visit Hong Kong in the coming December. Wondering where I can get the baking materials in Hong Kong?
