Banana cake – Cheer yourself up with a cake!

Banana cake

Banana, cinnamon cake recipe

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday, if not, don’t worry things will always get better, you  just have to be patient!

The  cake that I baked today is  my sweet comfort food, I find that  the ripen banana and cinnamon  flavours are so warm-hearted,pleasant and comforting especially if you feel a bit upset and are in need of something to cheer you up.  It is worth trying because these special simple experiences makes your life moments less bitter on the contrary, they make it sweet. 🙂

To make this comforting cake ( healthy version) you will need:

125 gr (1 cup) of flour

2 eggs

3 tablespoons of butter

125 gr (1 cup) of sugar

3 ripen bananas


1 teaspoon of baking powder

1/3 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda


1  whole orange zest

1/2 cup of milk

Are you ready? Off we go:

First, you need to take the eggs and butter out of the fridge so that they get to room temperature. Preheat the oven at 180 C/350 F/ gas mark 4 and get that out-of-the-way. Ok, now take a bowl and  mix the flour with the baking soda, bicarbonate of soda and the salt. Take a second bowl and add the sugar, the butter and mix them very well after that, add the eggs and mix them again (you should have now a creamy texture).

After that add the flour with the baking powder,bicarbonate of soda and salt and be careful not to over mix the mixture from now on, just make sure the flour is well incorporated to the creamy texture. Last step, add the mashed bananas  and the cinnamon (you decide for the quantity)  give it a quick mix and that’s it.

Put the mixture on the tray (I use the baking paper but you can grease the tray) and put it to bake for about 25 minutes in the oven, checking after  the 18th  minute with a toothpick in the centre of the cake if the toothpick comes dry then it is ready. When it is ready take it out of the oven and let it rest on a kitchen grid, this way it won’t deflate.

Please try it, this cake is cheap,easy and worth trying!

    Hello! Sounds good! How much flour? It’s not listed in the ingredients. =) Looking forward to making this recipe!


    1. Hello donna thank you so much for visiting! I am really sorry for the inconvenience you will need 125 gr of plain flour. I wrote sugar (the first ingredient) in the recipe but I meant flour (silly me). I updated the recipe now on the blog. Sorry again and thank you for letting me know. 🙂
      Best wishes,
