Easy Peasy Banana Cake Recipe

One banana, two banana, three banana, four.

I got too many bananas!

Oh but the magic they can create when mixed with butter, sugar, eggs.

This is the easiest Banana Cake Recipe, and also oh so tasty.

Easy peasy Banana Cake


125 g butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
3 small very ripe, mashed bananas
1 1/2 cup self-raising flour
1/4 cup milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 170C.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium sized saucepan.
  3. Add the sugar and vanilla and stir until all melted through and then remove from the heat.
  4. Mash your bananas.
  5.  Add mashed bananas to the butter mixture and lightly stir through.
  6.  Add egg and milk and mix in well. Add the flour and lightly stir through.
  7.  Pour into a lined tin and bake for approximately 40 minutes.

Voila! Banana Cake.

I topped mine with a delicious Cream Cheese Frosting because it is my favourite. I also added a lovely summer fruit salad to the top, because I knew we were going to eat the cake immediately.

    1. Thanks Sarah! Just to warn you, the bananas in the fruit salad do not keep for long. But it does make it extra special to have fresh fruit on top. Enjoy Sarah.

    1. Yes perfect for those squishy bananas. Normally my kids eat them too fast, but this time I managed to end up with a few spare. Thanks for stoping by Carolyn.
