Soft and Moist Banana Cake

Freshly Baked Soft and Moist Banana Cake.
Ready to eat...
The texture from the cuppies...
Small cuppies...
The texture from the loaf...

I have come out with this recipe, I did an experiment, by adding a little milk and extra butter, the cake will become a little moist and soft. The rest of the ingredients are quite similar to most of the banana cake recipes. The amount of the ingredients can be changed a little to suit your taste.

Soft and Moist Banana Cake
This recipe yield 6 small cuppies and a loaf.

250g salted butter
1 1/2 cups castor sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
4 tbsp milk
1 1/2 cups mashed banana
2 cups plain flour (sift together with 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda and 1 tsp baking powder)
Some Walnuts to sprinkle on top

Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add in eggs, vanilla essence and milk and mix well.
Add mashed banana into the mixture and mix well. Finally add in sifted flour and mix well.
Pour into a loaf pan (I use Pyrex baking loaf pan).
Bake in preheated oven at 160 deg C for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. If the top layer turns brown after 15 minutes, cover it with a piece of aluminium foil.
Cool cakes in the pan then remove. Use a sharp knife to slice and serve.
