I love Banana as a fruit, in a cake, in a muffin or anything with banana as long as it is good, sweet and oh so yummy. I discovered this cake merely because of a cake stand. I don’t go shopping not unless I badly needed some things or it is just about time to do so. But honestly I love going to kitchen section and when I saw this cake stand, I knew I wont go home without it. I fell in love and its now all mine. The moment it came to our kitchen, it added delight and every time I look into it…oh how I love to bake a cake.. Lol!
Anyway, let’s go to banana..this cake is seriously simple yet very addictive. I admit I am not artistic and I don’t have the talent. But I don’t think you have to try harder. I just presumed that as long as its good and something really good, then everything will turn out fine. So who cares if I can’t whipped or design my cake properly… I don’t care and I bet I am not the only one. Heres the perfect one for not so cool like me.. My daughter even asked me to make one for her 12th birthday..oh my my little big girl is now 12. I miss the little one I used to carry.
3/4 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
3 large eggs
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
250 grams self-raising flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
For the filling:
2 bananas, not very ripe, sliced
juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp of rose-water
150 ml whipped cream
For the icing:
200 grams good quality white chocolate
1/4 cup unsalted butter
Preheat the oven to 350. Brush the baking pans with butter or oil then dust with flour. Combine self-raising flour and salt. Set aside.
Cream butter and sugar, add the eggs one at a time then slowly add the flour/salt mixture. Mix well.
Divide the cake batter between two tins and bake for about 40 minutes.
Leave the cakes in the tin for about 10 minutes and then turn out on a wire rack to cool.
To make the filling: Toss the sliced bananas in the lemon juice. Mix the rose-water into the whipped cream and spread this on top of one of the cake followed by banana slices and sandwich the two cakes together.
For the icing: Melt butter and chocolate together in a heatproof bowl suspended over a sauce pan of barely simmering water. Spread the melted chocolate and butter on top and side of the cake and that’s it..
Here’s my lovely Peace of Cake stand.. Isn’t she pretty?.. Well I think she’s gorgeous and no one could ever take her place in my heart. Our relationship will last for a lifetime, that’s for sure.
This is the perfect one, I tell you… not really done but not overly done.. lol! I used to panic a lot when it comes to design or icing on my cake..but now I don’t really mind. Be who you are for whatever you are… LOL..I sound like I’m out of my mind..bear with me because the past days I got so busy.. I need to chill out..
Oh yes, here’s my daughter, the birthday celebrant who instantly fell in love with this cake so much. I thought of something magical cake for her but what can I do..this is what she wanted. I love my Honeypie..she makes me whole.. my forever sweet daughter turned 12 ..smiling in this photo with her precious cake and wearing her school uniform
