The Moistest Banana Cake Ever!

Hi guys Ok I'm obsessed with Banana Bread, Banana Cake, and anything that has to do with bananas in Baking.. Its that smell, while baking the cake that just rushes through the whole house, Bringing back good memories of childhood, when we would be playing in the backyard and mom would call us in the house for some good old Banana Cake..

I have 2 loafs in the oven at this time while I'm writing this post.. for tomorrow's breakfast since its Sunday and my boys are off of School, and only if you can smell the house "Its heavenly".

This morning I was buying bananas off the young boy who sells them on his cart daily, and I go to him give me the darkest, soft, ripest bananas you have! and he goes to me aunty are you out of your mind! And I go to him no sweety you will be out of your mind when you taste my moistest banana cake with these dark ripe bananas.. So I grabbed 2 dozens, peeled them and froze them 3 bananas in each Ziploc bag, for later.. So remember For the fullest banana flavor, select bananas that are beginning to turn Dark.

So pull up your sleeves and start baking here's my quick and easy recipe for The Moistest Banana Cake Ever!



Prep time 20 minutes
Bake Time 35 minutes
Cool time 2 Hours
Oven 350
Recipe Adapted from Mom
Makes 12-16 servings
Can be freezed up to 2 months/thaw and serve

Naz's Notes from my experience:
 1. Please be very precise with measurement's when Baking. Make sure you have the correct utensils, like baking cups and baking spoons in order to achieve
perfect results
2. Check your oven temperature occasionally. If it's too hot, cakes may develop tunnels, and cracks. If its too cool, your cake may become coarse.
3. All the ingredients should be at room temperature

Ingredients:
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour (maida)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
3/4 cup buttermilk, or sour milk
1/2 cup shortening, or cooking oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup nuts or raisins(optional)
poppy seed(optional)

Method:
1. Grease and lightly flour two 8-1 1/2 inch round or loaf pans.
Or you can grease a 13-9/2 inch baking pan.
2. In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt Make a well in the middle and put to aside.
3. In a separate large mixing bowl Add Sugar, brown sugar and  shortening or cooking oil, mix. Add eggs one at a time beating after each addition.
4. Add Bananas, cinnamon, buttermilk, or sour milk, and vanilla.
Beat with an electric mixer or by hand for 2 minutes.
5.Add wet mixture to dry mixture, mixing as much as flour as you can at a time..
6. You can fold in your raisins, or nuts which are optional.
7. Pour Batter into prepared pans, sprinkle poppy seed on top.
8. Bake in a 350 degrees oven for 30-35 minutes,on the middle rack of your oven, checking on the cake every 10-15 minutes, until a wooden toothpick comes out clean.
9.Cool cake in pan on wire rack for 15 min. Then gently remove the cake from pan and cool on a rack for up to 2 hours.
10. Frosting is very optional some like to eat their banana cakes plain (like I do) and some like a frosting, So frost with a desired frosting of your choice.
and Enjoy...
