Banana & maple cake

ease: 5/5.

prep time: 10mins.
cooking time: 40mins.
total: 45mins.

taste: 4/5. Super moist cake with a nice subtle sweetness. I added 1tsp cinnamon and I still found the cake on its own a little bland. You definitely need the icing to add flavour - as I had no cream cheese I just mixed about 1/4c mascarpone with 8g melted butter, 1tbs maple syrup and 1tsp vanilla and then spread it on the cake whilst still warm so that it melted and gave it a nice glaze. I made the following alterations:
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 3/4cup plain flour (white/unbleached)
  • I used 3/4cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
would I make it again: Yes - I would add 2tsp cinnamon and 1/2tsp nutmeg just to give the cake a little more spice and flavour.

recipe: Banana cake
