Super Moist Banana Cake

What’s the difference between banana bread and cake? They are almost similar except a subtle difference in the taste and texture. Banana bread is not as sweet as banana cake and has a heavier and drier texture. Banana cake, being a cake, embraces the full sweetness of a dessert (of course, you could adjust the sugar level) and is generally lighter and moist.
Well, google banana cake / bread and there are tons of recipes available. If you look under images, you could see a variety of textures – chiffon-looking types, bread-like types, moist-dense types, etc. I prefer the moist-dense type. If you are like me, then this Super MOist Banana Cake recipe is for you. There is no need to use any hand mixer or stand mixer, just a good ol’ balloon whisk. Be warn though – you are very likely to bake this cake very often, especially if you have family members or friends who love their banana cakes.

 

Ingredients:
1/2 cup (113 g) unsalted butter – room temperature
3/4 cup (150 g) caster sugar
3 large ripe bananas – mashed
2 eggs
2 tbsp milk
1 1/8 cup (160g) all-purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon powder (optional, if you don’t like cinnamon)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
A pinch of salt
