Who does’nt love simple one bowl recipes, I mean what is more convenient than throwing in all ingredients together, mix and bake! It can’t be easier I am telling you. I have a few favorite one bowl recipes which never fail me and this easy moist banana cake is one of them. I am all for step by step baking and following the proper method but there are some recipes that do work. In my opinion, ratio of ingredients play a vital role here since there is no improvement margin in the process itself.
That is the reason my biggest tip for successful one bowl recipes is to measure all ingredients as accurately as possible using a digital scale. Besides this easy moist banana cake, I have also made banana nut muffins, banana sheet cake, banana chocolate chip jumbo muffins, banana pancakes and super healthy banana bread before. Clearly my love for baking with bananas is quite evident.
This moist and easy banana cake was discovered when I had five bananas that no one was even touching and they were slowly turning black. This is a big family size cake and is amazing when your guests are coming on a short notice, you can whip it up and bake while they sit and keep wondering if that aromatic cake filling the house will be served to them or not 😉
This recipe is from Australia’s women weekly magazine and I can’t believe I found it in trash. Yes, trash 😉
