Banana Cake

Zion is a fussy eater. Chicken is his favourite & he can eat it all the time. Since he is a very active & social kid, we enrolled him to a school when he was 19  months. He is the most active kid in the class. My lill charming boy gets famous wherever he goes. I feel so proud that he is so famous among his peer groups at this age. Although he is very active, he never tries to hit others but he definitely bullies them:) hahahaha its so funny to watch him play with his friends. If I am around while he is playing he gets a little cranky. So I hide & watch him play.

Fortunately my maid "Mary" & he share a very good chemistry. They have a great bonding & he treats her like his friend. Coming back to food, I have noticed that Zion's snack box comes back full. He doesn't eat anything in school & just wants to play. My maid mentioned to me that he loves Banana cake. It seems she happened to buy some from a store & shared some with him. Zion loved it so much that he ended up eating the major portion. I was so happy to hear that he loves something healthy so immediately brought some Bananas & made Banana Horlicks cake for him. Made this yesterday & packed it for his snack box, Guess what?? The boz was empty:) He loved it & this will be one snack that I will make more often. This is a no fuss recipe & no thumb rule to make this. This is how I made it.

  • 3 large Bananas
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbspn Butter
  • 1 cup all Purpose flour
  • 1 Tspn Baking powder
  • 1/2 tspn Baking soda
  • 1/4 tspn salt
  • 1 tspn Vanilla Essence
  • 3 Tbsp Horlicks (I used Junior Horlicks)
  • 2 Eggs
  1. In a Mixie jar/ Blender blend in the Bananas & sugar to a smooth puree
  2. Now add in rest of the ingredients to this & blend it well for about a minute. The mixture will be a little thin due to Banana Puree.
  3. Grease a 9 inch Baking Pan & pour in the mixture to it.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 150 C for 35- 45 mins, until a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool and enjoy!
The cake is extremly moist & delicious.
