Easy Banana Cake

I was at a 4 year old birthday party recently and this was the birthday cake. It was so delicious I had to ask for the recipe. My friend made it with a few minor adjustments such as halving the sugar and using some honey instead, but whether you make it as it's listed here or make your own adjustments, I don't think you will be disappointed.

Recipe found on


1 cup self-raising flour
1 cup caster sugar
50g butter, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/4 cup (60ml) milk
1/2 cup mashed banana


Step 1. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. Spray a 7cm-deep, 10 x 20cm (base measurement) loaf pan with oil. Line base and sides with baking paper, extending 3cm above rim.                
Step 2. Sift flour into a large bowl. Stir in sugar. Make a well in the centre. Add butter, egg, vanilla, milk and banana. Stir until just combined.                
Step 3. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into centre comes out clean. Set aside in pan for 10 minutes to cool slightly. Serve warm or transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
