Banana Cake is a simple yet delicious recipe made with just few ingredients , I often make this recipe whenever I find 2 bananas sitting on the counter unattended ,LOL. Really love making this cake because it doesn't need any prep work, all we need is 5 minutes to prepare the batter, lets get started.

Serving Size          :  4

Preparation Time : 5 minutes

Baking Time          : 40  min ( Oven)
                                  35-40 min (Cooker)


Quantity Ingredients for Banana Cake Recipe
2 largeBanana
1/4 cupmelted Butter or oil  (50g)
1/2 cupSugar (100 g) 
1 cupMaida / All purpose flour (130g)
1 tspBaking powder
1/2 tspBaking soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1 tspVanilla extract

Cooking Method

Step 1)We need to preheat the cooker for 15 minutes on a medium heat without adding the Cooker weight. Similarly preheat the oven to 375 F / 200 C


Step 2) In a large bowl add the bananas and with a help of a fork mash them nicely until you get a paste like consistency, it should still have some small chunks in it, which adds texture to the muffins.If you are using small bananas then we need 1 cup after mashing.

Step 3) After mashing add Butter or oil ,egg, Sugar and mix everything together .Once combined add baking powder, Baking Soda , salt and vanilla extract.

Step 4)  Now add Maida and mix all the ingredients together and this is how it looks it should not be very thick and at the same time should not be watery. We can also use chocolate chips to thisif you wish.

Step 5) Grease the loaf pan with butter and place a parchment paper and pour the batter in. Bake it for 40 minutes at 375 F or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. (Here I have use 8 inch loaf pan)

Step 6) Similarly I made an other batch with the same ingredients. Once the cooker is been preheated place the cake pan at the center and cook for 35 - 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. (Here I have use 6 inch pan)

Our Delicious Banana cake is ready to be served, Please do try this banana bread at home and share it with your family members.
