Banana Cake (using oven toaster)


Craving for banana cake..
I used an oven toaster to bake this cake. The result is acceptable. Please remember to pre-heat if baking cake.

Personal view is I find toaster oven is not so good for baking cake as compare to a normal oven. The cake still rise but a normal oven will do a better job.  I have also done a cake in bread maker. Compare between bread maker and toaster oven. Toaster oven definitely has better result. In conclusion, if I want to bake a small cake and want to save time and energy,  I will  use a toaster oven to bake small cake like this one😊

1 and 1/4 cup self raising flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 ripe banana - mashed
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup brown sugar**
1/4 cup fresh milk
1 egg - beaten
100g  butter 
1/4 salt

1. Boil water in a pot. Put butter in a large metal/glass bowl. Place the bowl on top the pot of boiling water and stir until butter is melted. Remove from heat.

2. Add sugar, vanilla, milk, beaten egg, salt and lemon juice onto melted butter and stir them well.

3. Mash banana with a fork and stir into butter mixture. Mix in sifted flour and baking soda.

4. Pour batter into a baking tray(4x8inch) lay with parchment paper. And bake in pre- heated oven temperature 180° for 50min. Or until a tester inserted into thecentre comes out clean

5. Remove from oven. Let it cool and then slice it and serve.

Personally I do not like cake to be too sweet. You may add more sugar (1/2 cup) if you desire sweeter cake.
