Moist Banana Cake

The microwave method. Simple and easy method of making using mushy, soft bananas not fit for eating.

I used half of the ingredients listed below-
Banana – 2( well ripened, soft, mushy)
Egg – 1( use only half of one egg for this quantity)
Vanilla essence– 1/2 tsp
Unsalted Butter – 7-8 tbsp
Brown sugar – 8 tbsp
(Ordinary sugar can be used, I used brown sugar since I was making it in the microwave and it would add to the colour)
All purpose flour / refined flour ( Maida) – 280 - 300 gms ( 1 cup)
Cooking soda – 1/2 tsp
Salt – pinch
Nuts – cashew, almonds, raisins – about 5-10 gms each.

Mash banana well.
Put in a blender.
Add the butter and sugar – blend on low speed
Pour in the egg mixture – and just blend for a few secs.
Add the soda and the pinch of salt and the vanilla essence.
Pour in a bowl.
Fold in flour gradually.
Add the nuts.
Grease a glass bowl.
Pour in the mixture
And microwave on low heat about 4-5 minutes or till a knife comes out cleanly.
Loosen the sides
Turn on to a plate.
Slice and eat.


  1. Amazing! You are so brilliant! In a bowl no less! Perfect!

    Just one in the world do you use 1/2 an egg. Did you beat it first and then try and split it? Oh my is so 'slimy' it must be hard...I've always wondered how people do this. Got any tips?!

  2. Hi Radha. This is one of my favorites.kindly pick up an award from my blog. happy diwali dear.

  3. Trish - well I just whisked an egg and poured what I thought was approximately half the egg :-) ( it could have been more or less)
