Banana Hot Milk Cake Recipe by Bakeomaniac

This recipe is sure to win hearts as it does win eyes, and I hope I have already won your eyes with the picture!

Sorry that I only took one picture. The lighting in my house was getting really bad because the rain was there, and by the time I wanted to take another picture, they are pretty much gobbled up!

Yes, I am trying to say that they are extremely delicious here, and I really hope you give this easy recipe a try!

This can easily become your go to Banana Cake recipe for all occasions!

Please do make sure that you are using overripe or very ripe Bananas. This is simply because if we are adding bananas either way, why not add the overripe ones because they are naturally sweeter! If you are using less ripen ones, you will have to compensate by adding more sugar accordingly. Do let me know if you need any advice! The natural sweetness of Bananas will taste the best though!

If you ever tasted Banana Milk, this is even better than that! It not just has a nice milky background for flavour, it also has that natural sweetness and aroma of Bananas. It tastes really really good!

Also, you can vary the baking powder between 5 grams and 6 grams ( teaspoon measurements given in recipe ) depending on how airy and spongy you like your cake. I was in the mood for a dense one so the one shown on the picture is the 5g ones. If you like an airier one, go ahead and add the full 6 grams!

Like my other Hot Milk Cakes, they are each amazing in their own field! You can check them out here in the series:

2. Pandan Hot Milk Cake
3. Coffee Hot Milk Cake

None of them will disappoint!

Without further ado, the recipe!

  • 2 Large Eggs, 55g each, at room temperature
  • 1/2 Cup or 120ml Full Cream Milk
  • 1/3 Cup or 75g Cold Unsalted Butter, Chopped into Cubes
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
