This Banana Cake is a quick and easy cake that doesn't require too many ingredients or any fancy equipment. With just a wooden spoon and a mixing bowl, you can create the perfect homemade present for your next-door neighbour, kid's teacher or contribution to the dreaded school bake sale.
This recipe is a #hack on my Best Ever Moist Banana Muffins recipe which is exactly the same ingredients and mixing method (throw it all in the bowl and stir!) but baking it in a pretty bundt tin and for longer. I prefer the use of a bundt tin over a normal cake tin because it cooks faster and is quite pretty, meaning you don't have to worry about decorating, a simple dusting of icing sugar does the trick.
“This is also a great recipe to make with kids. I get one peeling bananas, the other one mashing, and then measuring is an opportunity to learn fractions #asiantigermum. You'll probably have all the ingredients in your pantry already, just add overripe bananas!”
