Quick & Easy Banana Cake - MADE IN a BAG!

Introduction: Quick & Easy Banana Cake - MADE IN a BAG!

This is probably the easiest cake recipe in the world! No mixer, no whisk, not even a spatula. Basically, all the ingredients in a large plastic food bag, mix, pour into a baking tin, bake and voila!

Please take a look at my recipe video above.

Or, here are the simple steps:

Put these dry ingredients in the bag & give it a shake...

125g (1 cup) self-raising flour

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

pinch of salt (skip if your self-raising flour already contains salt)

60g (1/3 cup) sugar

dash of cinnamon (optional)

Add these wet ingredients to the bag...

80-90g ripe banana (1 small)

1 medium egg

75g (1/3 cup) milk

24g (2 tablespoons) vegetable oil

10g (2 teaspoons) white vinegar

dash of vanilla (optional - I didn't use)

Quickly squash up the banana & mix into a batter. Should just take a minute or so. It's okay if there are still small bits of banana. Cut off a corner. Squeeze the batter into a 20cm/8in cake tin that has been oiled or lined.

Bake in a preheated 180C (350F) or fan 160C (320F) oven for 17-20 minutes.

This cake is soft & moist & slightly bouncy. Just a subtle banana flavor & not overly sweet. Enjoy!
