Banana Cake

With 2 'babies' to handle, nowadays do not have the luxury to laze in bed. Most of the times have to wake up around 6am to start my busy day to do housechore, prepare snack box for my elder son to bring to school, prepare stuffs for lunch.....This is the very first time I does my baking early in the morning, yes 6.30am! Preparation of the ingredients and mixing took me 1/2 hour , when the cake is baking in the oven, both of my kids have woke up! while waiting for the cake to be done, have to feed both of them and get my elder one ready for school. While my girl was having a short nap after her feed and my boy off to school, then I manage to have a cuppa of coffee with a slice of my yummlicous warm banana cake! ^-^ busy busy busy....

Hi Peng, trying out the banana cake too, but the cake turn out is hard and unbaked for internal. As i hv followed the receipe that u wrote, would be due to the oven temp too? I also suspect the milk i add in, 5ogm is equal to 3.5 teaspoon?

thks alot..for answering my previous question.
