Spongy Banana Cake

This is one of the most simplest Banana Cake recipe which I have come across using quick sponge cake method without any egg separation. And furthermore you do not need to incur extra washing on those mixing bowls and utensils. All you need is to put all the necessary ingredients into a big mixing bowl and beat till stiff/ribbon stage before folding in the flour mixture and oil.

As you can notice from the photo above, this Banana Cake is very light, spongy and fluffy. And mine was so soft that it crumbles quite while I am trying to cut it into slices. You can also take a look at some other bloggers who tried this recipe such as "Nasi Lemak Lover" and "?????" on their lovely bakes.

(Recipe adapted from Wen's Delight, original recipe by Richard Goh)


3 Medium Eggs

130g Sugar

200g Banana, lightly mashed

150g Cake Flour

1/2 Teaspoon Baking powder

1/4 Teaspoon Baking soda

100g Corn Oil

1/4 Teaspoon RUM

1. Preheat oven to 160 degree C. Grease baking tin and line with baking paper. (I omitted this step as I used disposal baking tray)

2. Sieve flour, baking powder and baking soda together at least twice, set aside.

3. Using electric beater whisk eggs, sugar and banana at maximum speed till stiff/ribbon stage.

4. Fold in flour mixture using spatula and mix well.

5. Slowly swirl in oil and mix till batter is shiny and flowing.

6. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes. (I baked it for around 35 minutes using 3 disposal tray)

Since this is a Mother's Day gift that I made for my mum and aunt, I have also decorated it with some banana slices and pumpkin seeds. And both family who tried this agreed that this recipe is indeed a keeper. And I would use it to make some chocolate banana cake for my boy and bestie soon.
