Super easy and fluffy Banana Yogurt Cake


image“It took just 20 min of time preparing from scratch till it was sent to oven.”

This recipe is definitely a keeper, especially if you have children, or you do like to eat like a child! :D

Moist, fluffy and yummy. It wasn’t too sweet for the palate. Still, delectable for both the adult and children.

The making method was adapted from a website, to turn an improvised cake from whatever I had in my kitchen pantry.

This is the easiest banana recipe I have tried so far. Yes, you don’t need electrical mixer to blend the ingredients. Stove and balloon whisk were used here.

Yogurt to be added to make it less sweet and more refreshing. I think you will like this for your toddler as well as any family member you loved.

imageYields 3 small loaves
3 large super ripe bananas, mashed
160g of self raising flour (about 1 and 1/4 cup)
100g of plain yogurt (about 2 large tablespoons)
1 medium egg
100g of raw sugar
80g of cold butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

Recommended bakeware:
Prepare 3 S-sized disposable paper loaf tins or similar baking tins (W5.3cm xD9.5cm xH4.7cm), greased

(1) Melt sugar, cold butter and vanilla essence in saucepan over low heat. Gently stir to avoid burning.

(2) Remove saucepan from stove and let it cool a little before adding yogurt. Stir using a whisk to combine well.

(3) Beat in egg. Stir vigorously to blend. Then, stir in flour, followed by mashed banana. Consistency of the batter should be viscous.

(4) Divide and pour batter into the greased tins. Bake in preheated oven at 165 deg Celsius for 30min and 175 deg Celsius for 5 minutes. Cool completely on rack before serve.

Tips: Use a balloon whisk to do the stirring in the entire steps.
* It’s ok if the raw sugar ain’t dissolving completely with the butter in Step (1), it will be in the later. It’s not that you can’t use caster sugar which dissolves easier than raw one, just that I thought raw sugar is healthier for the young ones. I was making this for my children. :)
* Bananas need not to be mashed finely, if you prefer some tiny sweet bites to moist the bake.
* 4 sheets in a pack S disposable baking loaf tins can be found at Daiso.

    1. Hi Carol,

      It can be baked into cupcake style. For to be called as muffin, I personally find this recipe a little too soft a texture to be called a muffin which to me, a firmer cake texture it has. :)
