recipeIngredient (used american measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml)
  • 4-5 over-riped bananas mashed or pureed
  • 275 gm flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 225 gm sugar (I used organic sugar)
  • 5 egg yolk
  • 5 egg whites
  • 1 tbsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 5 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tbsp dry ginger powder
How to make the recipe?
  1. Grease the two detachable pan around 4-5 inch width and 6-7 inch height. Place a parchment paper. Preheat the oven 15 mins before baking at 180ºC.
  2. Sift flour, corn flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon powder, dry ginger powder and place aside.
  3. Beat egg whites separately until they are halfway through soft peak.
  4. Now add cream of tartar and beat until they reach the stage of soft peak.
  5. Mash the bananas and place aside.
  6. Beat the yolks separately until soft and fluffy.
  7. Add sugar and beat again until they blend well with each other.
  8. Time to add milk and beat again until they combine nicely.
  9. Add vanilla essence and mix well.
  10. Put mashed bananas and beat until the mixture incorporates well with each other. Alternatively you could grind this mixture into a grinder. The bananas need to be smooth else the cake won;t have good result.
  11. Now add sifted dry ingredients into batches of three. Fold gently.
  12. Finally add the beaten egg whites. Very important to gently fold this mixture with a spatula else the cake won;t rise well.
  13. Pour the batter onto the greased pans.
  14. Bake at 180ºC for the first twenty mins then reduce the temperature to 170ºC and bake for further 15-2 mins or until the skewer cones out clean.
  15. Serve the banana sponge cake warm or chilled with tea or coffee or even a milkshake would do ;)
1. It's important the banana is pureed nicely else the impact won't be good.
2. Don't over bake or under bake this cake. Once the cake starts leaving the edges of the pan and the skewer.
3. Also it's important to beat the yolks and whites separately.
