Hi Shannon, Here's a Melt and Mix Banana Cake recipe that was hot property on the TradeMe Recipe Message Board about 5 years ago. I forget who the original poster was but here is the recipe again. I [and I am sure many others here too] have made this 100's of times. Very quick and easy.


150g butter, 3/4 C sugar, 2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla essence, 2 C flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 C milk, 1 Cup - about 2 - mashed bananas.
Melt butter, remove from heat and add sugar, eggs and vanilla essence. Mix well. Sift flour, baking powder and baking soda on top of melted mixture. Mix togetehr carefully, then slowly add milk and mashed bananas. Pour into well greased and lined 20cm cake tin and bake 180C for 30 - 40 mins. Ice with chocolate icing.

I use a silicone cake tin, no greasing, no lining, nor do I ice it.

Hummingbird Cake

2 egg whites
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon bicarb soda
½ cup apple sauce (from a jar)
1 cup mashed banana
¼ cup (25g) walnuts chopped
3/4 cup drained canned crushed pineapple (in natural Juice)
1 teaspoon mixed spice
2 cups self-raising flour
cooking spray

1 cup icing sugar
1 tablespoon save pineapple juice (from can)
2 teaspoons butter


Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced. Drain pineapple keeping juice for icing. In a large mixing bowl beat egg whites and sugar for 1 minute using electric beater. Stir bicarb soda into apple sauce (it will froth) and add to bowl. Mix in mashed banana, walnuts, drained pineapple and mixed spice, blend ingredients together well.

Gently fold flour into mixture in one go, DO NOT BEAT, as this will make the cake tough. Pour mixture into a round cake tin (19cm) that has been coated with cooking spray. Bake 35- 40 minutes or until firm to touch in the centre. Allow cake to sit for 5 minutes in tin before turning onto a wire rack to cool.

Once cake has cooled, place all icing ingredients into a small mixing bowl, blend together until smooth. Spread over top of cake. In humid weather it is best to keep this cake refrigerated.

Are banana cakes always dense, or am i just a sh! t cook?

cookessentials, May 20, 8:20am
They should be reasonably light, the baking soda in banana cakes definately helps. I am sure you are not a sh! t cook though.
