Banana Butter Sponge Cupcake 香蕉牛油海绵杯子蛋糕

This is very similar to the SP Banana Cake which I shared much earlier in this blog as both cakes use SP (aka ovalette or sponge cake emulsifier).

If you do not have access to SP or against using it, you can still make this cake by changing the method. You can either use whole egg sponge cake method or separated egg sponge cake method (refer here for detail).

I added extra mashed bananas as I was trying to finish my frozen bananas.

Overripe banana is best for this cake or any banana cake. So if you have overripe bananas that you can’t finish on time, do not throw away like what I did in the past. Just freeze them and use them anytime.

Banana is very easy to thaw. In our weather, you just need to take it out from the freezer at the beginning of preparation; it should be thawed by the time you need to use it.

As expected, this cake is very soft and moist.

120g sugar (I used 90g and the sweetness is just nice for me)
4 eggs
120g cake flour
½ tsp baking powder
120g mashed bananas (I used 220g)
¼ tsp baking soda
85g melted butter

1) Mix (A) till well blended. Add (B) and whip at high speed till light & fluffy (ribbon stage).
2) Add (C) and mix till well combined.
3) Fold in (D) until well blended.
4) Scoop the batter to fill ¾ of paper cups and bake in preheated oven at 180C for about 20 mins.

I made 8 medium muffin paper cups and 4 large silicone cups. If you are using all medium paper cups you should be able to get about 14 cups.

  10. Hi all,
    Thanks for your comments.

    Frozen bananas won't turn black but the colour will turn darker.

    Yes, I freeze whole banana with skin.

    Quay Po Cooks,
    Thanks for your tips. I heard lemon juice prevents bananas from turning black.

  11. hi,if dun use ovalette for making tis cake isit ok?when adding the banana is use what to fold in?i got try before just adding in banana to the egg batter then it deflate alot become not thick already.the oil is put all at once into the mixture?can u explain the folding technique is how?

    1. Hi Anonymous,

      Without ovalette, you need to change the method.

      You need to beat the eggs and sugar till ribbon stage then fold in bananas, flour and lastly oil. If the egg & sugar are beaten to stable enough, when u add in other ingredients it should not deflate a lot.

      I use my mixer lowest speed to mix in the bananas.
