Cooking With Sugar

Banana Cake

The outcome of this hassle-free cake was not what I had initially planned. I started out making a cobbler, but I ended up with this instead. Some of the best inventions came about by accident.

  • 2½ - 3 cups flour
  • 2 bananas (sliced)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup evaporated milk
  • ½ cup canola oil or 1 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sift flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl, add remaining dry ingredients and mix well.
  3. Add milk and oil, beat until smooth.
  4. Pour batter in a large greased baking pan.
  5. Place banana slices on top of batter.
  6. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes (or perform the toothpick test).
