Better Banana Cake

I have a recipe up already, but this one is better.

It’s just… correct.

Topped with chocolate butter-cream frosting.

This is not “low in sugar, low in fat”. This is Just Good Cake.



2 cups flour
1 & 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup water
4 ripe bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon apple-cider vinegar


Mash bananas, add all dry ingredients, all wet ingredients (except apple-cider vinegar), and mix. Add apple-cider vinegar. Mix. Bake long and slow. Bring out of the oven when springy to touch and golden.


In your food processor whip up margarine, icing sugar, cocoa and vanilla. I don’t have the ratios, it’s just a heap of margarine and taste as you go. It should be light and fluffy. Use a spatula to apply to the cool cake. If you make too much frosting just freeze the leftover, it’ll last.
