For this cake I used a recipe I googled: ‘Banana Cake’
Note: If you substitute the self raising flour (as stated in the recipe) for all purpose flour, remember to add 1.5 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt.
- 113g butter or margarine
- 1/2 cup sugar (granulated, caster, or mix in some demerara, whatever you have to hand)
- 1 cup self raising flour (I couldn’t find self raising here in Japan so used all purpose)
- [1.5 tsp baking powder & 1/2 tsp salt] – if you use all purpose
- 2 eggs
- 3 medium, very ripe bananas
- Handful crushed walnuts
- 1 tsp heaped cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp clove powder
- 1 tsp nutmeg powder
- 1 bar of chocolate (broken into small pieces)
1. Grease the rice cooker bowl/pan with butter or marg
2. Mash the bananas with a sturdy fork or blend in a blender
3. Cream the butter and sugar together and mix in the eggs
4. Mix together the mushy bananas.
5. Mix in the sieved flour and spices
6. Mix in the chocolate raisins and crushed walnuts.
7. Scrape into the rice cooker and bake for 60 minutes on the cake function. If you don’t have that function switch to on then check the mixture when the setting finishes with a chop stick.
8. If it comes out clean you are in the clear and can let it cool on a rack then eat.
Remember not to peek in the cooker to see how its going. Doing that will let all the steam out (this steam is what cooks the cake) 🙂
