Now I know why this Richard Goh’s recipe pops up all the time when I google for banana cake recipe. It’s easy (whole eggs) and so soft and chock full of banana. I used 5.5 (200g) in this 3 egg recipe, yet texture still fluffy and soft.

  • 200g ripe banana (mash with fork)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 150g cake flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 80g oil (reduced from 100g)
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon powder (optional)
  • 50g crushed walnut (optional)

Method

1. Sift flour with baking powder and soda. Include cinnamon powder if using. Pre-heat oven to 160 deg C.

4. Add flour in 3 batches. Beat on low for 10-15 seconds after each addition. Finally use a spatula to go around the sides and bottom gently to ensure a good mix with no clumps. Try not to deflate batter.

5. Take out about 1/4 of batter and add into the bowl of oil. Use a spatula to mix till even. This will take a few minutes.

7.  Pour batter into lined cake tin and tap to release large bubbles. Add walnuts on top if using. Bake for 40-45 min at 160 deg C, with top and bottom mode. I switch to fan mode for last 10 min. Adjust accordingly for your oven.
