Banana Bundt Cake

The other day I wanted to make a simple bundt cake for my Mr for breakfast but I also wanted to use up the (very) browned piece of banana we had at home. The end result: a banana bread textured, light, sweet and delicious cake! I would say it could also be a pretty decoration on a celebration table (Christmas, maybe?). Oh and it is also extremely easy 🙂

Ingredients (half size, double the ingredients for a big one!):

100 g margarine
100 g sugar
1 pack of vanilla sugar
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
a pinch of salt
2 eggs
1/2 pack of baking powder
200 g white flour
about 100 ml milk (add more if the batter is too thick)
1 ripe banana, mashed (and another one to decorate, if you wish)

1. Mix the margarine until smooth (I like to melt it just a little bit in the microwave oven)
2. Add the sugar, vanilla sugar, and salt to the margarine, mix until incorporated
3. Mix the flour with the baking powder
4. Add the flour mix to the margarine mix, blend it well
5. Slowly add the milk to the mixture (careful, it likes to sprinkle around if you use a hand mixer) and finally the cocoa powder and mashed banana. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
6. Coat the inside of the bundt cake pan with margarine and flour, and pour the  batter into the pan.
7. Pre-heat the oven to 175℃, and bake the cake for about 45 minutes – 1 hour (toothpick test).
9. When ready, the cake should easily slip out of the pan.

  1. […] for a way to use some of the bananas we have at home, in a more-or-less healthy way (banana bread, banana bundt cake, anything that says ‘cake’ excluded haha), when I stumbled upon this smoothie recipe […]
