Banana Cake for Sammy… yeah. It’s all about Sammy at the mo’

Banana cake.

I actually have never had a reason to contemplate making a banana cake until now. And that reason is my dear friend Sammy, and her desire to impress her new beau. Myself, I think banana cakes are for the elderly and very creative monkeys, of which I am neither… Yet.

I don’t know how to make banana cake. I don’t even like banana cake yet (Give it 30-40 years and I’m sure I’ll be all over that). And this is why Sammy will never truly love me.

Banana Cake
1 cup castor sugar
3 eggs
½ vanilla pod, scraped, or 1teaspoon vanilla extract (not essence)
185ml oil
½ cup pecans, chopped
½ cup almond meal
2 cups mashed banana
1teaspoon ground cardamon
1teaspoon ground allspice
1 ½ cups self raising flour, sifted
½ cup plain flour, sifted
• Whisk eggs and sugar until pale and thick (not unlike your average white trash bogan)
• Stir in all other ingredients until combined
• Pour into a lined cake tin and bake in a preheated oven, 160C for 45-50 minutes (when skewer comes out clean)
• Cool and ice with some kind of cream cheese icing I guess. Cream cheese, a splash of cream, icing sugar and lemon zest whisked together. Sounds good.

I’d like to tell you to try this because it is delicious but I would be lying to you, and myself, because I just made it up. It is based loosely around a zucchini cake we used to make when I worked at a cafe called Utopia. It was a good cake so hopefully this will be to. This is not necessarily good reading…

I shall await the result Sammy. Also, if anyone out there in blogland needs a recipe or has a challenge for us, feel free to post it. We love a good challenge here at foodisthebestshitever. All I got at the mo’ is getting out of bed in the morning…

    5 recipes from 5 different countries with only 5 ingredients in all 5 recipes. I just thought of that. I don’t know why I chose 5 maybe because 4 is not enough an 6 would be too easy. Goooooooooooo.

    1. Thank you very much beaver. We work hard for you 🙂
