Ingredients

    1 cup Chelsea White Sugar or Chelsea Organic Raw Sugar
    100g Butter (melted)
    3 Eggs
    3 Bananas (mashed with a fork)
    ½ cup Low Fat Milk
    1 tsp Baking Soda
    150ml Plain or Fruit Yoghurt (apricot works well)
    2 cups Plain Flour
    3 tsp Baking Powder

    Lemon Icing
    375g Chelsea Lemon Flavoured Icing Sugar
    1-2 Tbsp Hot Water
    50g Butter (softened)

Method

    Preheat the oven to 160°C conventional or 140ºC fan-forced.
    Grease a 21cm round springform tin (with high sides) and line base with baking paper.
    Beat Chelsea White Sugar (or Chelsea Organic Raw Sugar), melted butter and eggs until pale and creamy. Add the mashed bananas and beat well.
    Heat the milk in the microwave until nearly boiling (approx 1 min). Mix in the baking soda then stir into the banana mixture.
    Add the yoghurt, flour and baking powder. Mix well and pour into the prepared cake tin. Bake for 45-50 minutes until the cake is cooked in the middle and just pulling away from the edges of the tin (insert a skewer into the centre and if it comes out clean it is cooked). Cool in tin for 5 minutes then release the sides and cool on a wire rack. When cold, swirl with icing.

    Lemon Icing
    In a bowl mix the Chelsea Lemon Flavoured Icing Sugar with a little hot water. Add butter and beat until light and fluffy. Add more hot water to make a softer consistency if required.

This is the best banana cake recipe. It is so moist and a huge hit in this house. Easy to follow recipe and cooking time was reasonable. Only banana cake I will be making from now on. Thanks Chelsea.

Mine took extra 40mins to cook. Not impressed.

It took so long to cook!! :( It was a bit annoying, but other than that, a good recipe. Nice and easy to follow.

This cake was so easy to make and so moist and it's been given the thumbs up so i will be making this once again.

I iced it with chocolate icing,

Lovely recipe. Wonderful moist cake. Will use this again definitely

The whole family thought this was the best banana cake I had ever made. I expect I'll be making it at least once a week from now on. Great texture, and it actually rose. Magnificent!

Best banana cake recipe! So yummy and moist. This is definitely the go to recipe.

Lovely and moist cake, I used the 150g butter though. Stayed moist the next day... surprisingly it lasted 2 days! Yum.

Like others have said it doesn't cook and just tastes of raw egg

Beautiful banana cake recipe. Loved by my family.

The only cake I make, when visitors come over, or for the kids school cake stalls... a very popular dessert with the whole whanau... thank you for sharing this recipe, it is the best banana cake, ever!!

Beautiful and moist.

Wow, thank you so very much for this moist banana cake recipe. I have been baking so many banana cakes in the past but have never add yoghurt to my ingredients etc. Not only my banana cakes still taste fresh and moist in the following morning, but it did make the difference--in taste and flavour let alone looked like done by professional etc lol. 100% better.

Made this banana cake tonight it came out moist ! Is one of the best cakes I have made - lovely !!

Now all time favourite! Great banana cake recipe, thank you :-)

Seriously one of the best banana cakes we've ever made. Moist, delicious and kept well.

An absolutely delicious banana cake, looks and taste great

OH MY GOD the best banana cake I have ever made so moist. It's a keeper.

The best ever banana cake that i have made so easy Sugar was made to taste Thank you for this wonderful recipe I have passed it on to my children

Didn't cook properly even though I cooked it a lot longer than recipe said. Was very gluey. Not a winner.

Made this banana cake today .My grandkids love it . Did not last very long. They took some home with them for their lunch.

Amazing!!

Absolutely wonderful recipe and deliciously moist. This is now my go-to banana cake recipe. I used vanilla yoghurt which worked well

Today I made this cake batter, put it into a muffin tray and the kids went Gaga over them. Delicious, the slight tang when using apricot yoghurt is Devine. Best banana cake recipe yet! Cheers.

I made this today with my son. it's very nice and simple

Lovely banana cake

I have made this cake several times. The last time I did the whole thing in the food processor. My wife told me it would not work, but it turned out beautiful. I actually put the bananas into the processor in pieces after mixing up the sugar and eggs and with the flour.
Such a lovely versatile recipe. Colin 41/2 stars
