The easiest banana cake to make, just right for using up those very ripe bananas in the fruit bowl! I make this one in a loaf tin then you can cut slices and butter them for an after school treat.
I learnt this recipe for cuca de banana, or banana cake, back home in Brazil when I was studying in the south, where the German influence is very strong and therefore there are plenty of German dishes. I suppose the Germans originally made it with apples, but bananas are definitely more "Brazilian".
This is an extremely easy banana cake recipe. I always use a flat rectangular baking tray for this banana cake so it bakes through, but I bet you can use the loaf tin too and it would come out beautifully. This banana cake serves a legion of hungry flatmates and co-workers for 2 days but then you'll have to bake a new one.
These are a big hit with colleagues. Very moist and easy to make. If you like banana cake, you'll love this tray bake.
Got some older bananas that need using up but want a change from the usual? This really really yummy recipe is one I modified from a plain banana cake and it is now so popular it gets requested all the time. Best of all it can be done with ease in a food processor, so it's also really fast to make for a picnic or sudden guests! Also kids love it, it's got chocolate in it! Doesn't need icing or buttering, is plenty good on its own.
