Banana is quite a common fruit available in most kitchen. It is my habit to turn those ripened banana into a delicious, quick week day dessert.
This recipe yields a moist Yeasted Banana Cake that will make those banana cake haters into big fans.
It combines the sweetness of ripe mashed banana with yeast minus the butter or fat. This traditional cake is also suited to be steamed. Like anything baked with yeast, this requires about an hour to rise.
