Banana Sponge Ring Cake

Banana Sponge Ring Cake - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
This cake was made using very ripe and almost disintegrating Bananas.The summer heat is too much to almost “cook” the Bananas that they start getting over ripe very soon.I usually keep these very ripe Bananas in the freezer compartment and use them for Smoothies,Ice creams or jellies and jams.Quite tired of having these the better half requested for “something new and delicious” and thus this cake was born. This is a Banana flavoured Sponge Cake which has a melt in the mouth texture and very soft.I poured some icing sugar over it and studded it with sugar flowers and stars.But you can have it plain with a cup of evening tea and believe me you are going to get surprise wows and Mmmms when your near and dear ones eat the cake.It is also a great way to recycle leftover Bananas – in fact you can substitute any fruit and get great results like any berries,Pineapple,Orange,Mango and even Apple.If you are daring enough try Chickoo (Sapota) or lime juice for a refreshing feel in the mouth!

Recipe Notes

The best part is that this cake is light and perfect for summer teas.This can be had by itself or as a pudding with whipped cream.Do not add a lot of sugar as the ripe Bananas fill in for almost 40% of sugar in the recipe.
NOTE – I have used Cream of Tartar in the recipe.If you do not have it then omit it.

I am a passionate foodie who loves to cook, serve and love to see people relishing my creations. Since the time I was small I used to wonder about the 'how' of things in the kitchen.

Then when I finally ventured as an unprofessional kitchen helper for my late grand-mother (a par excellent cook in her own generation) I was fascinated by the amount of stuff you could do to a simple milk and rice to form a most yummy pudding.

Here I am sharing my recipes with a will to learn from some and educate others as well!
