Bingka Pisang (Banana Cake)


Bingka is our traditional local kuih. Also sort of known as a cake, pudding or bread for the chewy, soft and dense texture, obviously made with bananas. I usually use over-ripe bananas but of course fresh ones as equally as good too. Whether its fresh or bananas you prefer to save, bingka is made by creaming, folding in the flour and baking. By far for a traditional bingka, coconut milk is one of the ingredients. I as usual will blame it on busyness. Completely forgot to buy. Suppose it was okay because even without coconut milk, the bingka wasn't a failure. Still loveable as how I wanted. 

Ingredients
2 cups mashed bananas
3/4 all purpose flour
1 cup salted butter
1/2 cup castor sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence

Method
Cream butter and sugar till sugar dissolves and the mixture is light yellow in colour.  
Add eggs one at a time and continue creaming.
Fold in flour followed by mashed bananas.
Note: gently fold in so that there's no lumps.
Combine in vanilla essence and tip mixture into a greased pan.
Bake at 175C for one hour or until bingka is cooked.

  3. The Banana cake looks very rich & dense. Well I love coconut milk & would have loved it in it:) I havent tried a lot of Kuih stuff here but everytime I see them feel like trying them. Now during this Ramadhan season most of the local shops are filled with Kuihs & I am very soon going to taste different variety. Well today I made 2 batch of Banana eggless cake. The first one with butter & the second one with oil. Both The cakes were very tasty but the texture was a little gooey. I now need to try more attempts to make one perfect eggless Banana cake.
