Unbelievably Moist Banana Snack Cake

Well, the weather outside has quickly turned from a mild Autumn of wind and rain to a wintery mix of cold and snow…I fear that our Midwest winter weather is here to stay for a while.
This recipe is perfect for a cold and dreary day indoors while the snow falls outside. I love to brew a cup of English tea and slice up this moist and flavorful cake. I am always amazed that mixing this simple list of ingredients together can produce such a delicious treat. By the way, this is a another great cake to pack in the lunchbox.

Unbelievably Moist Banana Snack Cake

1 2/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup mashed ripe bananas
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Confectioners’ sugar

In a large bowl, combine flour and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk brown sugar, water, banana, oil, and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients, just until moistened. Transfer to greased 8″ square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Cool. Dust with confectioners’ sugar.

  1. A strong cup of tea and a slice of this gorgeous banana cake sounds like just the ticket on a wet and dreary Spring day here in south east Australia. Keep warm – and thanks for another magnificent recipe. x


  2. So true ” I am always amazed that mixing this simple list of ingredients together can produce such a delicious treat.” A couple of weeks ago I cooked up a bag of garbanzo beans to make sweet potato hummus. Looking at all those beans cooked up, I thought to myself “too much garbanzo.” So I googled garbanzo recipes and found “Garbanzo and apple cake”! My husband loved it!


  3. I’ve been looking for banana bread recipes that look easy and delicious at the same time and I think you just brought me the perfect one πŸ™‚ thanks! Oh, and nice blog you have.
