The work 'scrumptious' can aptly describe this cake. It is really that good. Funny enough, like most of my experimental recipes, I stumbled across this one because I have a white chocolate bar that's about to expire and a bunch of overripe bananas nearer to the side of rotten. Thanks to member toms112 of the BBC GoodFood website who provided this delicious loaf cake. I will always go back to this recipe whenever a banana cake is requested - promise!
Banana White Chocolate Chip Cake
125 g [1/2 cup] butter
150 g [2/3 cup] caster sugar (superfine)
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 very ripe bananas - mashed
190 g self-raising flour
1/4 cup milk
100 g white chocolate chips
- Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Pre-heat oven to 170°C/fan 150°C.
- If the butter is softened to room temperature, beat in a bowl with the caster sugar using an electric mixer until fluffy and light.
Melt the butter with the sugar over medium heat. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
- Add in the egg and vanilla, mix well.
- Add the mashed banana and mix well.
- Fold in the flour alternately with the milk using a wooden spoon. Mix just enough to incorporate the flour.
- Add the white chocolate chips and fold to mix.
- Pour batter into the prepared cake tin. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a skewer poked in the middle comes out clean.
