Moist Banana Cake/Bread Recipe

Lot of times, we see the ripened bananas and we throw away. what a waste? But here is the solution to the waste. Froze the ripened bananas till you can use them for later for smoothies or making delcious banana bread/cake. This recipe will make you fall in love again and again and it is a crowd pleaser.

1 1/2 cup unbleached white flour
1 tblsp wheat germ
4-5 medium ripened bananas
2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
125g butter(8 1/2 tblsp)melted
Grated rind of 1 lemon
2 eggs
4 tbsp honey

Grease the loaf tin with butter.Peel the bananas, then mash with a fork. Mix the flour, salt and nutmeg together. Add butter and mix well with the beater untill softened.Stir in the sugar, lemon rind, eggs (4tbsp) honey and the mashed banana. Beat well until evenly mixed. Put the banana cake mixture into the prepared tin.

Bake the cake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees C(350 degree Fahreinheit) for about 1 1/4 hours. Cover the top of the cake with foil if necessary. Test with a skewer which should come out clean if the cake is cooked.

Cool the cake slightly and then turn out onto a wire rack. Gently warm the remaining honey and brush over the cake. If liked sprinkle crushed sugar over the top.

Normally I buy a few bananas and they are uneatened and gets ripened in no time. So if you buy bananas specifically to make this banana bread make sure you hide them from the family and wait for them to go brown and soft inside. Lots of people throw these away, don't, simply use them up by making this banana bread recipe.
