After trying many things with my limited resources here, I have been trying my luck with cakes these days. Before coming here, I knew only two types of cakes, one is the simple egg cake and the delicious date cake. I will post the recipes of these two soon.I had thought that preparing cake is very difficult and long procedure. But now I think it is as simple as any other dish. But still I can not make the fabulous looking cakes that we get in bakery. I hope one or the other day I will succeed in making them too.
Recently I had lot of ripe bananas at home. So I cooked all possible dishes with them. This cake was one of them.
All purpose flour 1 cup
Baking soda 1 tea spn
Sugar 3/4th cup
Butter 1/2 cup
Cashew nuts 1 tbl spn
Salt 1/4th tea spn
PS: If you use ‘baking powder’ instead of ‘baking soda’, cake becomes a bit harder.
Sieve together flour and soda. Keep it aside.
Beat sugar in butter till it becomes a smooth paste. Then add egg and beat again.
Now add mashed banana and mix well. Add this mixture to flour and mix slowly.
Add some cashew nuts if desired.
Bake in a greased vessel for 40min at 350F.
