Banana Sponge Cake

Did I mention I love bananas? Inspired to bake something banana-y again! Maybe tml..or maybe Sunday.

Anyhow, I chanced upon this banana sponge cake recipe.. It's light, it's spongy and it's easy to make. One-bowl-mix!

Loving this.

Banana Sponge Cake - adapted from here
  • 3  Eggs
  • 100g Sugar
  • 3+1 Banana, lightly mashed
  • 150g Cake Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 100g Corn Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
 Preheat oven to 160 degree C. I used cupcaker liners but it led to shrinkage, so it may be better to use a baking pan or hard muffin cups.

1. Sieve flour, baking powder and baking soda together 2 times.
2. In another bowl, beat eggs, sugar and 3 large banana at maximum speed till stiff/ribbon stage.
3. Fold in flour mixture and mix well.
4. Slowly swirl in oil and mix till batter is shiny and flowing.
5. Pour into baking cups and drop a slice of banana into each cup of batter.
6. Bake for 20 minutes if making muffin-sizes cakes or 40 - 45 minutes if using cake pans.

I happened to have some lemon cream cheese frosting and piped a swirl on each cake. Yums!

Lovely, bouncy sponge with chunky banana bits!
