Seeing bananas are starting to come down in price in Melbourne I thought I’d post a Banana Cake recipe which is delicious and easy to make. The recipe is for two loaf tins but I’ve made mine in a silicone cake mould I bought a while ago but haven’t used yet. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Grease and line two 10 x 18cm loaf tins with baking paper. In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar and almonds and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the sour cream and bicarbonate of soda, leave to stand for 5 min, then stir in the melted butter, caster sugar and eggs. Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into another bowl. Gradually fold in the sour cream mixture, followed by the mashed bananas.
Divide the mixture equally between the prepared tins and sprinkle the brown sugar mixture on top. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of each loaf comes out clean. Set aside to cool in the tins for about 20 min, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
