MOCHA BANANA CAKE

Photobucket

I love this cake, it's quick ,easy and  delicious. It hardly takes a few minutes to prepare, doesn't require any mixer and the combinations  are endless. With just a basic recipe, you can create another interesting and exotic cake such as strawberry mocha, pineapple lemon,  pumpkin chocolate and many more.

But now I'm using instant coffee and mashed banana. These are moist and  tasty, you can't stop eating just a piece. You should bake your own cake since home made one is much healthier, free from preservatives and excessive sugar, can easily freeze them too.

MOCHA BANANA CAKE

2 1/4 C all purpose flour
1/4 C melted butter
3/4 C milk
1 C sugar
1 C banana mashed
4 tsp instant coffee
4 tsp water
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda

METHOD

* Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add in sugar. Preheat oven @ 175 C, grease 8 x 8 pan.

* Mix coffee with warm water, add the milk, butter and mashed banana.

* Now add wet ingredients to the flour and mix until just combined.

* Pour onto prepared pan and bake for 30-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

* Cool in pan for 10 minutes then transfer onto wire rack to cool.

* Slice to serve or apply your favorite frosting.
