Banana Cake

This is the first time for me joining this wonderful event called Black and White Wednesday hosted by Susan from The Well-Seasoned Cook. As for me the reason to join this event is because it is so challenging to make bw food picture looks appetizing. Hopefully by joining this event regularly, I will be able to shoot beautiful and drool worthy pictures. For my first entry, I presented a picture of banana cake. It was taken as colored picture, then edited into black and white using picnik. Later you may find the original colored picture.
This cake has been famous and become chit-chatting object among my Indonesian food blogger friends (we'd been talking and sharing the recipe over messaging group), mainly because it is so easy to make, no need to use mixer and the result is so yummy.

- 3 0r 4 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1 cup sugar (I reduced to 3/4cup)
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1tsp vanilla essence
- 1tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1.5 cups of all purpose flour
I added sliced almond for topping

Banana Cake

Preheat the oven to 350F (175C). With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix well. Pour mixture into a greased 4x8 inch loaf pan. Sprinkle the sliced almond on top. Bake for an hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.
