How to Make a Banana Cake?

Anyone may create this simple recipe at home with a few simple steps.

  • To begin, whisk the eggs until they are light and fluffy. Before adding the sugar, continue beating until it forms a foam.
  • The cake is incredibly moist and light because of the tiny bubbles in the egg and sugar mix.
  • The bananas, melted butter, and flour are then added. Bake in the oven, and you’ll have a delicious banana cake!

Baker’s Tips

Please read the following suggestions to get the best outcomes.

  • The sweetest flavors can be achieved by using overripe bananas. If you use overripe bananas, expect a more moist and squishy cake.
  • Use eggs that have been left to come to room temperature. This is a critical point. Warm water can be used to keep chilled eggs at room temperature.
  • Prepare the flour by sifting it. As a result, the final product will have a softer feel.
  • Overmixing the cake batter will result in a dry batter. You want the cake to be fluffy, airy, and light if you keep the bubbles in the batter.
  • For baking, put two pans on top of each other. Thus, the cake will be more moist and delectable due to its thinned-out edges.

What Pan do I need to Use for Baking Banana Cake?

With this recipe, what are its complementary dishes?

A cup of coffee or tea is the perfect accompaniment to the banana cake. The following recipes are suitable for afternoon tea.

  • Cheese Puffs (Gougeres)
  • Cranberry Scones
  • Madeleines (with Pumpkin Spice)
  • Beignets


  • 200 g (7 oz.) overripe bananas
  • 100 g powdered sugar
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, melted (I used Challenge brandy butter)
  • 120 g self-raising flour, cake flour, or all-purpose flour (see Notes)
  • 3/4 – 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F. Butter either 8″ x 8″ or 9″ x 9″ square cake pan, a regular loaf pan, or two mini loaf pans. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Set aside the finely mashed overripe bananas in a bowl for later use.
  3. Sift the self-rising flour and the baking powder together in a large bowl. Set aside for now.
  4. A stand mixer can be used to incorporate the eggs into a batter. First, beat at medium speed (speed 5) for a minute before increasing the speed to the highest (speed 10). The egg should become frothy and bubbly. Three minutes on high speed with the sugar added. When the egg and sugar mixture is ready, it should look like this.
  5. Mix in the bananas, mashed, with the egg mixture. The mixture should be thoroughly incorporated by gently stirring it 2-3 times with a spatula.
  6. Microwave it for 20 to 30 seconds or until it’s completely melted. Divide the flour into thirds. Fold and stir 2 or 3 times with a spatula until the butter is evenly distributed throughout the egg mixture. After that, add a third of the flour and stir just enough to combine it. Gently incorporate the second half of the flour. Gently mix in the remaining butter, then add the remaining flour. Make sure that the flour is completely dissolved. MAKE SURE TO NOT OVERMIX. The beaten eggs should retain air bubbles in the batter.
  7. Pour in the banana cake batter. Before baking, place the Pan on another one that is not filled with anything. The top of the cake should be covered with aluminum foil to prevent it from browning after it has set at the top, about 20-25 minutes of baking.
  8. After 40-50 minutes of baking, a cake tester should come out clean. The cake must be allowed to cool for 10 minutes after it comes out of the oven before cutting into pieces.


  • Please use the metric measurements provided in the recipe for the most precise results.
