Homemade quickie Banana cake

Ingredients :

Self-raising flour - 1 cup
Castor sugar - 1 cup
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Eggs - 2
Butter - 100 gms
Fresh Bananas - 2, pureed thickly
Vanilla Essence - 2 tsp


Melt the butter in the microwave on medium-high for 1 minute. Whisk it together when warm and mix the sugar into it. Break eggs into this mix and whisk together very very well until well blended. Now add the banana puree to this and mix together. This is the forming of the batter.

Add the baking powder to the flour and mix. Now add this to the wet batter, in parts so that it does not form any lumps. Mix the whole batter very well now, it needs to be well constituted.

Invert a tea-saucer on your microwave turntable. Grease a microwave deep dish with a bit of oil/butter. Now pour the batter into this deep dish. Place the dish on top of the saucer that you have inverted on the turn-table, and microwave on high for about 6 minutes. Stop, and insert a fork into it - if the fork comes out clean, your cake is done. Else you need to bake it again for a minute or two.

Tip : While the cake is baking, don't ever leave it alone, keep an eye on the smell and go by your instinct. Enjoy!!

I baked it for my mother's birthday early in Sep this year and it was such a grand success!! Try it and I guarantee you the same!
