Banana Cake

Every time I have banana cake for snack, I always remember my childhood because I use to buy them from the sari-sari stores near our house. I enjoy those moments. Sari-sari stores back then sell banana cake and cassave cake, but now, not anymore. I wonder why. Hmmm... 

But every time I eat these delicious banana cakes, I also remember one very vivid memory. My grade school teacher used to ask me to sell the cakes for her. My commission? For every 5 slices I sell, she gives me a piece. I went to public school during my elementary years and being a good student that I am, I could not refuse even if I wanted to. Who would? It's teacher's mandate. I wasn't good at selling but I did manage. I hope that, that teacher no longer do it these days. For whatever its worth, the banana cakes did taste good. That memory is deeply embedded in my head and in my taste buds which is why, I am posting this recipe. I recreated in here a banana cake whose taste is closest to those I had growing up. I hope you'll like it. :)

1. In a bowl, mix evaporated milk and vinegar. Set aside.

2. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt. Set aside.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and oil.

4. Add the milk mixture. Whisk again.

5. Add the dry ingredients in 3 additions. Mix just until flour is incorporated, mixture will be a bit lumpy. Don't over mix. Over mixing will make a tough Banana Cake.

6. Mix in the mashed bananas and vanilla extract. You can use lacatan, latundan and cavendish bananas.

7. Place in a pan lined with wax paper. Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 50 to 60 minutes. My banana cake took 55 minutes to cook in my oven.

8. The banana cake is done once a toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Let cool on a wire rack.

9. Then slice, serve and enjoy! :)
