Recipes: Banana delight cake

Easy Moist Banana Cake

This is a great way to use up bananas that are overripe.

It’s nice and easy to put together, and comes out lovely and moist – a good keeper for camping. Store it in an airtight container so it will keep – if it survives people’s greed. 


  • ½ cup (125g) butter (softened, not melted)
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs – beaten
  • 3 ripe bananas (medium size) – mashed


  • Prepare your cake tin or loaf pan by lining with baking paper.
  • Preheat your oven or camp oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Place the butter and sugar in a bowl and mix until creamy.
  • Add the eggs to the creamed mixture a little at a time and mix until well combined.
  • Add the mashed bananas and mix to combine.
  • Add the flour and salt and fold through.
  • In a separate bowl mix the milk and bi-carb soda, and stir to dissolve the soda. Then pour into the cake batter and fold through until mixed well.
  • Spoon evenly into the prepared cake pan or loaf tin and bake in a moderate oven 180°C (350°F). 
  • Or place on a trivet in a preheated camp oven. I’ve also found a ‘heat diffusing mat’ placed on top of the trivet works well to help stop the bottom of cakes, scones, etc, burning. 
  • Bake for approx. 45 mins or until cooked and then remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.
  • Can be iced if you like.
