Food Trip Friday 063: My miracle banana cake

I gotta say this now – the new FTF logo rocks!
 And for some good reason, the logo makes me feel… young. Don’t you agree with me?

My entry this week is something like a miracle from … my kitchen. From the oven, specifically. You see, I haven’t used my oven for nearly a year now because it doesn’t get warm/hot enough heat for any kind of baking.

But since it’s my birthday today (ahem) and I recently scored a Pyrex bake n’ serve meatloaf dish that I’ve been itching to use for the longest time, I decided to venture on a kamikaze mission to bake my favourite banana cake using my newly-acquired Pyrex bakeware.

So considering the nature of my mission, there I was, understandably, mumbling prayers to the gods and goddesses of baking while mashing the bananas and sifting the wheat flour, practically begging them over and over to grant my one and only birthday wish – that is, to eat banana cake – promising not to do this, and not to eat that in return. Whatever I could think of basically!  It was only later that I realised I was being silly. Hah. But you know what… an hour and a half later, I was not disappointed!

Out came this vanilla-flavoured, sugar-reduced banana cake!

Well, who says I can’t have my banana cake and eat it, too?

Happy birthday to me.

  3. Thank you, Three Cookies. You are right, banana cake, banana bread, banana something… as long as there is banana in it, it's a hit at home.Cheerful, thanks.Masarap nga siya when it's still mainit-init. Plus kape. Woohoo. Wow, dami mong handa this Friday :)Willa, the new logo and site is so eye-candy! Yes, you can have a slice… ipa-fax ko na lang ba? hihihi

  4. Jean, I love bananas! I'm trying all sorts of tricks using bananas in my baking activities.Mirage, sa umpisa lang yan nakaka-nerbyos. But as soon as you've seen your first product – maadik ka! hihih Thanks for your well-wishes, MommyandMatt. It's worth a try :)Cecile, yes, it was moist indeed. The first ones I made were a bit dry so I experimented and found out what ingredient to add to make it moist even after a day or two.Lyza, thanks for dropping by. I love your adobo with chicken liver so much I want to try it next week 🙂
