banana cakeMost often, we have overripe bananas in our fridge. If so, do not just throw them. You may bake them into a banana cake or sometimes called banana bread. This is well loved by many and can be found sold in various bakeries around the globe. I think, every race or nationality knows and likes to eat banana cake for dessert or snacks with coffee or tea.

In this home-baked banana cake recipe, I made sure not to mash the banana long time as I want to taste some bits and pieces when eating. Also, you should also mash the banana prior to adding into batter so as not to make the bananas oxidize causing browning reactions.
