“Although there are many banana cakes here on Zaar, I couldn't see one just like this. It is more of a snack cake style, not fancy. I found it in my files while in search of something easy and requiring a minimum amount of equipment and workspace. I served it with a sifting of confectioner's sugar over top but you could serve it iced or without a topping if you prefer. I left out the salt when I made it and don't know that it would have made any difference if I used it. I used an 8 inch square pan and initially thought there would be too much batter but there wasn't. Just be careful stirring at the beginning till the dry ingredients start to be incorporated.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, salt and nuts into an ungreased 8 or 9 inch square pan and stir around with a fork to mix well.
  2. Measure milk into a measuring cup and beat eggs in lightly with a fork. Add to pan along with bananas and oil. Stir around with the fork until blended and dry ingredients are all incorporated. Use a rubber spatula to scrape any ingredients clinging to sides, in corners or on bottom of pan into the batter and even batter out in the pan.
  3. Bake at 350 F for 30 to 35 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Cool in the pan on a rack. Makes 9 servings.
