SP Bananas Cake SP香蕉蛋糕






三婶的食谱的是用搅拌机 (blender)的(是的,搅拌机也可以用来打蛋糕),做法方面我只好自己来。糖份方面第一次做我减了15%,但是还是嫌甜,同一个星期内我又做了这款蛋糕,这回我减了35%,甜度就刚刚好了。

160g ripe bananas (mashed)(about 2 - 3 medium size bananas)
50g fresh milk
1/8 tsp salt
4 eggs
200g sugar (I cut down to 130g and mixed with some brown sugar)
1 tbsp SP (aka ovalette or sponge cake emulsifier)
½ tsp bananas essence (I used vanilla extract)
200g plain flour (I used 150g cake flour + 50g plain flour)
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
80g corn oil (I used canola oil)

1) Line the bottom of a 8" round pan with baking paper and grease the side with butter. Preheat oven to 180C.
2) Mix (A) and set aside.
3) In a mixing bowl, add (B), use an electric mixer to beat till incorporated.
4) Add (A), beat till well mixed (about 1 min)
5) Sift in (C), beat till ribbon stage (batter should be thick and fluffy)(about 5 - 6 mins).
6) Fold in (D) and beat till well mixed (about 1 min).
7) Pour the batter into prepared pan and bake in preheat oven at 180C for 45 mins.

I lowered the temperature to 170C after baking for 10 mins.


  1. hello. Your Banana Cake looks good. If i use cake flour do i still have to put in baking powder and baking soda?

  2. I ever tried Banana cake b4, but didn't use SP...

    The Fondant Chocolate Cake u asking, the recipe is a bit similar to Aunty Yochana warm chocolate cake recipe...

    The recipe is from my friend, so not so convenient for me to post it up...

  3. i like eat .....
    but u stay so far

  4. Hi tracieMoo,

    Cake flour is low protein flour, it does not consist of baking powder or baking soda. Only self-raising flour consists of baking powder.

    Therefore, you still have to add baking powder and baking soda.

  5. Hi Sharon,

    This is also my first time using SP in bananas cake. I got another r recipe adapted from Aunty Yochana's blog, that one is my favourite.

    I understand it's not convenient to share the recipe. No problem. :)

  6. Hi Sock Peng,

    Last time you came to Singapore I made chocalate cake for you, next time I will make this cake for you. ^O^

  7. I also like it very much!! :)

  8. I will surely bake this one. I like banana cake very much. Already saved your recipe :-)

    May I know if I don't have corn oil, can I use normal cooking oil?

  10. Hi yoonlai,

    If you like soft and fluffy bananas cake, you should try to make this when you are free, it's pretty easy.

    Hi Joanne,

    You can use normal cooking oil but preferably choose one that is very light taste. Most vegetable oil is ok but peanut oil (such as Knife brand) the smell may be a bit strong which will affect the taste of the cake.

    Alternatively, you can use melted butter, I am sure it will make the cake more fragrant.

  11. Hi Angela,

    I have finally bought the SP. Therefore I will be trying the cake real soon. Hehe.

    May I know what is the serving portion for the recipe?
    I am thinking whether to reduce the ingredients into half.

  12. Joanne,

    Do you have a 8" round pan? The cake fit just nice in a 8" round pan. The serving portion is exactly what you see in the pix.

    It can cut into 8 slices to 12 slices depending on the size.

    I won't suggest you halve the recipe unless u use a much smaller pan coz the cake will not look nice if it's too short.

  13. Joanne,

    Don't forget to share with me the verdict after trying. :-)

  14. little prnce's mummy,

    Thanks for ur lovely comment.

  15. Hi, chanced upon ur blog.. can I check with you.. can i dun use the emulsifier for this receipe?

  16. Hi Linlin,

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    I think you need to have emulsifier for this recipe as it acts as a stablizer. I doubt the cake will not turn out to as soft and high without emulsifier.

    U can easily get the emulsifier in baking supply shop or major supermarket in S'pore.

  17. ok.. noted.. and can I ask u a question.. sometimes when i bake cake rite.. certain parts of my cake come out to be sticky... looks uncooked but actually cooked..

    Mine is a normal small over with no upper and lower fan..

  18. Hi Linlin,

    My oven is also without fan.

    Do you mean there is one layer of "kueh-like" texture in your cake? I do get something like that when I first started baking, I am not very sure of the reason too. It could be due to beating of egg, folding of flour or even oven tempresure....It's very hard to troubleshoot without seeing the whole process.

    I suggest you learn from cake making demo videos, there are many in Youtube. And if you are interested in baking, you may read more from this site You can learn how baking work from this site, very informative, I learn my baking basics from this website.

    Happy baking and never give up! :)
