…super quick and easy!
I love cakes, cookies, cupcakes, everything sweet you can bake and since I have this little Blog here I enjoy making them almost every day. I have a long list of things I want to bake I haven’t tried yet and I am always curious how a new recipe turns out.
But sometimes I just have that little monster in me, knocking on my sweet tooth, saying feed me now!! Feed me with something really sweet and flavorful with a consistency you don’t want to stop chewing on….
Well, I am lactose intolerant and that means for me here in Germany, I can’t just go and get me a cake, a sweet bun, some cookies from the bakery, because nobody sells lactose free stuff…. so I hear that monster knocking and that means to me, let’s bake, quick!!
This banana cake was exactly what I needed.
The recipe is adapted from here.
- 1 cup mashed bananas (about three)
- 1 cup (200 g) sugar
- 1/3 cup (80ml) vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup (120 g) flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9 inch pan. Mash the bananas and mix in the sugar, oil, and eggs.
Stir in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Pour into the pan and bake, uncovered, about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
I made a sugar glaze with vanilla extract and sprinkled some brown sugar on top.
Can’t hear any monsters anymore, can you?
