Banana Cake

I have wanted to bake this banana cake for quite sometimes back but only get to do it this week. This cake is moist and flavourful with the sweetness of mashed bananas. I had actually make one with the walnuts sprinkled on top and the other one plain, Overall, I still prefer the one with walnuts.

1. Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl.
2. Add in eggs, vanilla essence and milk and mix well.
3. Add mashed banana into the mixture and mix well.
4. Finally add in sifted flour and mix well and pour into a cake tin.
5. Bake in preheated oven at 160 deg C for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. If the top layer turns brown after 15 minutes, cover it with a piece of aluminium foil.
6. Cool cakes in the pan then remove. Use a sharp knife to slice and serve
