Top-ranked recipe named "Banana Cake"
Adapted from Joy of Cooking
"Excellent moist and tasty recipe.
I varied as follows:
only cooked 40 mins
in bundt pan
added golden & regular raisins heated over low heat in orange juice (added some of the drained syrup w small extra dry ingredients to compensate)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour the bottom and sides of a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan. Set aside. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl combine the mashed bananas, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. With a rubber spatula, lightly fold the wet ingredients (banana mixture) into the dry ingredients just until combined and the batter is thick and chunky. (The important thing is not to over mix the batter. You do not want it smooth. Over mixing the batter will yield tough, rubbery bread.)
Scrape batter into prepared pan and place the slices of banana on top of the batter for garnish. Bake until bread is golden brown and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 60 minutes. Place on a wire rack to cool and then remove the bread from the pan. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Makes 1 - 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf of banana bread / banana cake.

Lrwilson48 2 years agoMy family loved it! I made muffins instead. I used bread flour, added golden raisins & a lonely uneaten apple too. They were gone in a day.
Missndeans 2 years agoGorgeous cake. I added raisins and mixed spice to the mix and sprinkled caster sugar over the top to give it a crunchy glazed topping when it comes out of the oven. Will definitely make again!
