Todays' recipe is easiest recipe.It does not require any beating,folding and creaming as we do in baking generally.Even without all  these it is one of the best cakes I have ever tasted.Believe me! you will fall in love with this cake.


Self raising flour-11/2 cups
Bicarbonate of soda-1tsp
Bananas-3 mashed
Eggs-2 lightly beaten

1)Grease a ring tin and line base with a baking paper.
2)Sift flour and soda into bowl.Add sugar.
3)Make a well in the center.Add bananas,eggs and oil.
4)Stir until mixture is smooth.
5)Pour into cake tin and bake at 150 degrees for one hour.
6)Ice with cream frosting or  lemon icing.

Easy icing:

Powdered sugar (sifted)-2cups

Mix the powdered sugar with the vanilla and milk. Then add more milk a bit at a time until it is thin enough to drizzle over a cake. Once you've iced your cake, it's best to let it stand for one or two hours.

To make chocolate icing, add two tablespoons cocoa powder when you mix the powdered sugar and follow the rest of the recipe above.

Lemon icing:
Icing sugar-11/2cups
Strained juice of1 lemon
To make lemon icing,put the icing sugar in a bowl and add enough lemon juice to make it a barely pour able consistency.Spread over cooled cake and leave it to set.

You can make self raising flour by adding2 teaspoons of baking powder  for every  1cup of plain flour(Maida).
If you are not fond of tangy taste I suggest you not to go for lemon icing
