Lovin from the oven which is by the way a fabulous website with some very tempting recipes. I just don't know how she manages to try out soooooo many recipes though.
Cinnamon tastes great with lots of cakes , though we tend to see it fitting well only in our curries and biryanis. I tried a Cinnamon madiera cake the other day and it turned out just as nice. Will try posting that recipe soon.
Let's get down to baking.
Here's some lovin from the oven.
You will need.
3 over ripe bananas mashed
1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar( granulated is just fine)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups flour
For the swirl
1 tbsp cinnamon powder
1/3 cup sugar.
Mix the two well.
How you do it...
It's really simple. First the usual. Preheat your oven to 175 C. Butter and flour a loaf tin. If you don't have a loaf tin, no sweat. I imagine you could use any other kind of baking dish as well. Maybe a 8 or 7 inch round pan will do.
Mash the bananas roughly using a fork and mix it with the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla. I used the cake beater and mixed it for about a minute or two. Mix the flour and baking soda and sift it into the banana mixture. Pour half the batter into the baking dish and then pour the swirl mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Then gently pour the remaining batter and toss it in the oven to bake for about 45- 50 mins.
Apart from the tooth pick coming out clean and the cake leaving the sides of the pan, you'll know the cake is done when that
crazy good aroma of banana bread and cinnamon invade your entire home.
Happy Baking everyone....
