recipeIngredient (used american measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml)
Dry Ingredients:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon corn flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder (optional)
Wet Ingredients
  • ½ cup coconut oil or any vegetable oil or butter at room temperature
  • ½ cup coconut milk or cows milk (i have used coconut milk)
  • ½ cup demerara brown sugar or granulated sugar
  • ½ cup mashed bananas
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
How to make the recipe?
  1. If you are planning to use an airfryer then check a cake pan or tin which goes inside or easily fits inside the air fryer tin. Just line with a parchment or baking paper, then pour the batter and bake.
  2. Alternatively you can bake in otg or oven.
  3. Grease your baking pan with butter, dust some flour and place aside.Sift 1 cup of flour, ¼ teaspoon baking soda, ½ teaspoon baking powder, pinch of salt, 1 tablespoon corn flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder.
  4. Place the dry ingredients aside.
  5. Take 1 long banana or you can use 2 medium sized bananas, peel and mash them with your finger or spoon
  6. Just use ½ a cup of mashed bananas the rest you can eat or store in the freezer for future use.
  7. Ensure the bananas are mashed and they look smooth and do not have any lumps.
  8. Take ½ cup sugar in a mixing vessel, I have used demerara brown sugar but you can use granulated sugar instead.
  9. Pour in ½ cup of coconut milk.
  10. Also add ½ cup of coconut oil. I have used organic coconut oil for this cake recipe. Alternatively you can use ½ a cup of butter at room temperature or use any vegetable oil like olive oil.
  11. Using a hand blender just blend until the sugar dissolves and the mixture looks smooth.
  12. Add ½ a cup of mashed bananas and blend again till smooth.
  13. Its time to add the dry sifted ingredients. Add the sifted flour gradually into batches of three.
  14. Cut and fold the mixture with a wooden spatula. Don't over beat this mixture.
  15. Lastly add 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence, mix gently.
  16. Preheat the airfryer for 5 minutes at 200°C and if using oven then preheat for 10 minutes at 180°C. Pour the cake batter in the greased pan. Bake in the airfryer for 15 to 17 minutes at 160°C. Once your baking time is over. Don't open the airfryer allow the cake to sit for another 10 minutes in the airfryer. This is important as the cake will continue to bake in the hot temperature in the airfryer so don't tamper, be patient :) After ten minutes remove gently and check with a skewer if its done or not. If not done keep for another 5 minutes at 160°C. If using oven then bake at 180°C for 35 to 40 minutes or till the cake is baked.
  17. Allow the cake to cool down, Slice the cake and refrigerate once it cools down. Should last in the fridge for 3-4 days.
Notes
1. Don't forget to preheat your airfryer or oven while baking a cake. As once your cake batter is ready and if you wait for a long time then the cake may not rise evenly or bake properly.
2. Its important to use a good baking soda and powder, don't use them if its too old. Try using them on warm water if it bubbles then they are good to use. Always refrigerate them that increases their life shelf.
3. Know your appliances and you will understand how they function only if you bake or use them a little more.
4. If you fail its okay, just rise up muster some courage and start fresh again. Do this activity till you do not find success.
