I want to let you in on a little fact. It’ll either make you love this banana cake recipe, or well, make you not love it but here it is: this recipe contains condensed milk. And because I could more than happily sustain life by injecting condensed milk directly into my blood stream, this fact means that I Absolutely Love This Recipe and also because I do believe sharing is caring, here I am sharing it with you.
My mum’s banana cake recipe.
As you can imagine, this recipe has been honed to laser perfection over the years. It’s unique not only because it uses condensed milk *nom* but also includes the juice of an orange, resulting in seriously the moistest, softest, most scrumptious banana cake you’ll ever have.
My mum usually bakes them in two loaf tins, but I’m sure you can also make it in one round tin if you so please 🙂
And I pried the recipe away from her little hands just to share with you. See how much I love you guys? 😉
ps. For those of you orange haters out there (which kinda sorta includes me, I don’t like orange flavoured cakes, especially with chocolate!), you can’t taste the orange juice in this recipe. It just makes it moister!
