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.
