Apple Banana Cake

Apple Banana Cake

Two weeks ago was a red-letter-day.  It was "Father's Day  and I baked a special Apple Banana Cake for my  father and served it during our dinner.  This is a cake that smells as good as it tastes... incredibly yummy !


2 Cups all purpose flour
1 Cup riped mashed bananas
3 Apples chopped into small cubes
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1 Teaspoon salt
2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 Cup chopped roasted almond
2 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 Cup full cream milk
1/2 Cup unsalted butter
1 1/4 Cups white sugar
3 Eggs


1.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.
2.  Grease and flour an 8 or  9-inch spring form pan.
3.  Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon and set aside.
4.  In a large bowl, cream together the unsalted butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
5.  Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and full cream milk. 
6.  Beat in the flour mixture, mixing just until incorporated.
7.  Fold in the mashed bananas, chopped apples and almonds.
8.  Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.   
9.  Cool the cake completely on a wire rack.

Frosting :  In this recipe, I used "Whippit" for the icing.  It is a non-dairy whipping cream.  I find this product not so sweet and it is easy to use on cake.

Garnishing and Decoration :  I used sugar flowers, tiramisu chocolates and cherry.
