Recipe adapted from Ju (The Little Teochew). Thanks Ju for sharing such a fabulous recipe. This is definitely a keeper for me. I recommend this easy recipe to all banana cake lovers especially beginners, you will be surprise baking can be so easy yet the result is fabulous.
Banana Rum Cake
1 large egg
90g castor sugar (I used 60g and the sweetness is just nice to me)
90g vegetable oil
4 medium-sized overripped bananas, mashed with a fork (I added pinch of salt)
1 tsp rum (or ¼ tsp vanilla extract)
125g plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1) Beat (A) with a hand whisk till slightly pale.
2) Add (B) and mix well.
3) Sieve in (C), mix till just incorporated. Stop once there is no traces of flour remain. 4) Pour batter into a lined 6” round pan and bake in preheated oven at 175C for about 40 mins or scoop into muffin cup till about 70% full, bake at 180C for about 20 mins.
Update: I tried using 80g oil and 35g of milk, tasted as good. So ever since that I have sticked to this amount.
90克 幼糖（我只加60克糖因为选用的香蕉很甜 ，甜度对我来说刚刚好）
4 条 中型香蕉 （用叉子压成泥，加入一小撮盐拌均）（原食谱没加盐）
1 茶匙 兰姆酒 （或1/4茶匙香草精）
½ 茶匙 泡打粉 (baking powder)
½ 茶匙 苏打粉 (baking soda)

It is really frightening when babies get high fever. I can see that when my nephew and nieces got that. Hope Lucius will get well very soon.ReplyDelete
I also like to eat the small small type of banana. Not sure if it is the same type u use. :)
My daughter love banana cake, must give this recipe a try. By the way, 马来西亚小小条的香蕉 we call as Pisang emas, I also use this type of banana for baking.ReplyDelete

I love banana cake. With rum..even better. With rum raisins ice cream...would be best...mmmReplyDelete
小孩生病，最辛苦的是妈妈，因为妈妈无时无刻都想代替孩子，让小孩赶快好起来。希望 Lucius 身体健康ReplyDelete
This IS a cake recipe, originally seen in Yochana's blog. Many who tried gave thumbs up and is definitely a keeper.ReplyDelete
Lucius is in infant care centre but attending nursery yet.
This recipe is simple and nice, you should give it a try when you have overripe bananas at home.
I would lov to have it with rum & raisin ice-cream too!
Thanks for your info. I tried to search from Aunty Yochana cake index but couldn't locate this recipe. Can you please send the link to me? So that I can also include it in my post.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your reply and sharing of the link.
I have tried this Yochana's recipe before I start blogging, it is a great recipe and tasted as good as this recipe or even nicer.
However, looking at the ingredients and method, I don't think it is similar to the recipe of this banana rum cake. I hope I am right.
I baked this Banana Rum Cake last night & it was marvelous, just would like to check with you if we could add in walnut & what is the amount? TQ.
Glad that u like thus cake.
You can add in toasted walnut, the amount is u to u. I think for this recipe amount can add up to 100g.
Thank you so much for your reply and also thanks for sharing, Happy New Year to You & Family 2012.
appreciated that if you could let me know the step 3, the flour is just fold in manually or using mixer ?
Fold in manually. This cake doesn't require elect mixer. Happy baking!
Hi angel it's a wonderful recipe u got here! Just tried baking them as muffins and it was an easy process! Thank u for the recipe! Just however, my muffins top sank the moment I took them out from the oven. Would u be able to advise on why it is so? Otherwise the taste is great though not presentable! I used convection heat is it correct? TIA for ur help!ReplyDelete
Hi Angel, I have tried this recipe yesterday in a muffin cup but turned out more like kueh. Why??:( Do I require to use electric handmixer? I only used hand whisk for the whole process. I put the muffin tray in the middle of the oven and the muffins raised very high but when I took it out the muffins sank, was it cos I placed too near to the heat? I put in the oven for 20 mins at 180 degrees but sone parts were not cooked. I did put 2 sliced of banana on the top but I dont think it would affect the muffin right? Apprciate your expert advices.ReplyDelete
I had not encountered the same problem in muffin though I had encountered the same problem in sponge cake.
I would think that this can be related to oven temp? You may try to experiemnt with lower temp and place the muffin tray in the centre rack.
I am not expert but I can try to offer my opinions. Hopefully it helps.
For this recipe, only hand whisk is needed. Do not need an elect mixer.
If the texture turns out like kueh, most likely you have overmixed the batter or your baking powder is not working.
Muffin sank when taken out from the oven could be due to over mixing or related to oven temp. The oven temp and baking time in the recipe is just for reference, you got to adjust according to ur own oven.
I am a beginner and I specially choose to bake a banana cake from your receipe because the steps are easy to follow. I have a question, my cake turned out to be very moist like kueh texture. Can you pls share your comments? Thank you.
if using mini paper cup, how many minutes should i bake them?ReplyDelete
For the baking time you really have to monitor yourself and I am not sure how mini your cup is. I would suggest you check at 10 mins. Insert a toothpick, if it comes out clean means the cake is cooked.
hi, angle. thanks for your recipe, can i further reduce the amount of oil? will it affect the texture of the cake? pls advise, thanks.ReplyDelete
I think should not reduce more than 20%. If you recude the amout of oil remember to replace it with milk.
