Banana Cake

When iman took a bite,  her reaction was "oh wow!!". Hehehe...  It's a wow banana cake.  Mok suka sangat.  Mok kata cake aku lembut and not too sweet.  Cuma mok being  orang tua,  prefers cake pisang with banana essence.
Yikes! I hate banana cake with banana essence.  That's the reason kenapa aku tak makan store bought kek pisang sebab mesti rasa the overwhelmingly yucky essence.
This recipe is adapted from  Originally the recipe ada orange maple syrup.  But urgh...  Rasa mcm tak sedap je.  Pastu takut manis sangat.  Aku bukan seekor semut..  Hehe

250g butter, at room temperature
180g (1 cup) caster sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
4 eggs
700g mashed banana
330g (3 1/2 cups) self-raising flour, sifted
2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
160ml (2/3 cup) milk
1. Preheat oven to 180C. Brush a deep 22cm (top measurement) fluted ring pan with melted butter.
2. Use an electric beater to beat butter, sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl for 5 minutes or until pale and creamy.
3. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Add banana. Use a large metal spoon to fold in half the flour and half the bicarbonate of soda. Fold in half the milk. Repeat with remaining flour, bicarbonate of soda and milk. Stir until just smooth.
4. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 10 minutes to cool. Turn onto a wire rack over a baking tray and set aside to cool.
