Banana Cake (I am back)

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahmeem

I am back after the longest break ever from blogging. I have missed reading all your blog posts and also missed sharing mine with you. We have travelled a lot this Summer, met family and friends.  One meeting with a blogging buddy in Dubai stands out from the rest. Rafeeda is a very bubbly and cheerful person exactly as I had imagined her to be from her blog posts. It was an amazing experience to meet a person in reality, whom  you have only known through blogging. My entire family enjoyed her company although for a short time. I look forward to meeting Rafs again and also many more bloggers in future:)

I haven't cooked or baked a whole lot since June and l have to restart all over again and continue posting my recipes:) Here's what I had whipped up quickly one day that flew away from the kitchen in minutes and luckily I had managed to take pics:) This is a recipe that requires minimal ingredients, and expertise. You can make it with ingredients that are already there in the pantry and  the fridge.


Al purpose flour(ubleachhed)-1 cup
Eggs( organic) -3 large at room temp
Salt-1/4 tsp
Baking powder-1 tsp
Sugar( organic)-1/2 cup
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Cardamom powder-1/2 tsp
Sunflower oil-1/2 cup
Bananas(ripe)-3, mashed
Milk-2-3 tbs


1.Preheat the oven at a 350 deg F.

2. In a standing mixer with the whisk attachment,  add the eggs and whisk until frothy.

3. Pour in the oil, bananas and the milk and continue whisking until everything gets well incorporated.

4. Mix the flour, salt, baking powder, cardamom powder, turmeric powder roughly with a fork and pour it into the bowl and run the mixer only until just blended and all the ingredients come together.

5. Pour the cake batter into a greased baking dish or a loaf pan and bake it in the oven for 22 minutes or until a skewer or a tooth pick comes out clean when inserted into the cake.
