Steamed Banana Black Sesame Seed Cake

There are still 4 poor bananas lying on  the table I bought 2 days ago.  The skins have developed black spots and turned dull yellow.  I was thinking very hard how I can use them better.  At first I thought of making banana bread, but I do not want to spend 2.1/2 hours making it from scratch because today I am terribly tired and lazy. So alternatively I make this simple and nice steamed banana cake.


120g brown sugar
5 eggs (60g each with shell)
1/2 tsp salt
250g self-raising flour
400g mashed banana
1.1/2 teaspoon  bicarbonate of soda
150g melted butter or margarine
2 tablespoon roasted black sesame seeds

1)  Place brown sugar and eggs into a big mixing bowl, beat until thick and foamy,  fold in flour and salt gently with a rubber spatula until well combined.

2) Add in bicarbonate of soda, mashed banana, melted butter and  black sesame seeds, mix well.

3)  Pour batter into an 8" square ( line and grease) baking pan. Steam for 45 minutes or until cooked.


  1. Looks great and soft! I like those black sesame seeds inside.

  2. Hi Veronica, your steamed banana cake look so soft and moist. yum yum

    Have a great week ahead.
