To please a crowd is not that easy. We have to look at the budget and also the quality. This banana up side down cake cake cost less and gives a nice flavour plus an elegant look. I did this cake to serve 10 people. So if you doing for few try doing half of the recipe.
I calculate the cost and its about 10 dollars to please 10 people. So you have to ask your self whether I make one or buy out side. To buy something like this you have to pay at least 30 dollars. All my recopies are guaranteed try this for an occasion and let me know the results too.
If you would like more sweetness you can always add extra sugar in this recipe. If you want to more syrup to go through the cake add another 50 g butter to it. When fruits are in season try doing something like this. bananas re so nice when you bake.

Recipe for the cake
If you don’t like to worry about making cakes try this moist and delicate simple cake. Its so simple to make and the topping is really simple too. The taste is awesome and I am sure that you are not going to stop eating.
After making this cake on a Sunday I took several pieces to work on Monday.All my friends were asking how I made that. I promised to to give the recipe but to tell you the truth I am posting the recipe may be after 4 months. 🙂 Hope they will grab it. Shh………
This cake goes well with a cup of coffee but I really prefer to serve this as a dessert because of the moistness and the richness. The nuts and the condensed milk on top of this cake makes this such a rich but simple cake. The nutty flavours coming out from the pistachio gives a unique taste to this.
If you like you can always add any kind of a nut to this cake with out a problem. I like to serve this cake with hot custard or cold to make it melt in mouth after a meal.

I love to have a piece of cake when ever I have a coffee or tea. Banana bread is my favourite. Whenyou bake a banana bread or a cake the house smells like a bakery and even the next door neighbour will get the smell.
This cake is rich , soft and moist too. you canm leave the bread 3-4 days out in room temperature (I dont think you will keep that long 🙂 ) or about a week in fridge or you can freeze them for future use. I recommend you to slice the cake and leave individual pieces in fridge for easy thawing.
This recipe is for a large banana cake. You can divide the ingredients by two to a smaller loaf.

The ingredients you will neeed , 200g Butter in room temperature, 350 g Sugar, 4 Eggs, 2tsp vanilla, 400g plain flour, 2 Tsp Bicarbonate of soda, salt, 150 g Sour cream and 4 well riped banans.
Make sure to gather everything closer to you.
Add sugar and butter in to a mixing bowl and whisk well.
After add the eggs one by one and whisk well.
Add the bananas while whisking on a low speed.
Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk on a low speed first and then whisk on a high speed for one minute.
Add the prepared mix in to a loaf pan and bake on 180 c about 45 minutes to one hour or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.( The baking tray I used is 12 inch x 4 inch loaf pan) Leave the bread in the loaf pan for 5 minutes. After take out from the tray and leave on a wire rack to cool completely.
This is how it looks when taken out from the tray.
It is like a sponge. Once press it comes back to the shape.
This is how it looks when sliced.

These bursting Blueberry buns are moist and scrumptious. The cream cheese gives a creamy flavour to the tart while blueberries gives full of goodness and colour. When you open them up the buns the purple colour juices gives a tempting and appealing look. You cant stop eating them at all.
Doing them the way I have done is super simple. You can use burger moulds or disposable foil cases or even muffin pans. If you are using muffin pans try cutting the dough in to smaller pieces. The other way is using a tart cases or one large one.
The other thing is you can leave them in fridge about three days. (I doubt it will stay that long) Can freeze them in individual bags for future use too. If you want to serve these for a high tea or a brunch try cutting them in to smaller pieces .
Apple and almond is a good combination when baking cakes or loaves. It gives a nice and dense cake to go well with a cup of coffee or tea. I added a bit of bicarbonate of soda to this cake to lift a bit.
To make it healthy I added less sugar. If you like more sweeter bread add more sugar.
Almond meal gives nice fluffy texture to breads or cakes. The pureed apples gives a tangy flavour as well it moisten the cake really well.
This cake is freezer friendly and if you like freezing the cake try slicing to size you like and add in to individual bags and freeze them for future use.
Lets bake the bread
These beautiful cookies are loaded with lots of nuts and fruits. I really love the taste and also the texture of it. I didn’t double bake these cookies as I loved the texture which gives a feel of nutty cake.
Normally biscotties are baked two times. If you do not the texture of this cake you can always double bake to leave longer.
If you like you can double bake these for keeping longer. It didn’t stay longer at my place. It will be a real treat with a coffee or to give away for Christmas.
This recipe will make 25-30 slices.
Slice the log in to thin slices.
Though banana bread can be done in different ways , one of the best ways is with condensed milk. To get the colour and add some sweetness I added molasses in it. But you can totally omit molasses from this recipe too.
This bread is not very sugary as I didn’t add much sweetness to this bread. One way this bread is healthy with less oil and sugar. The other thing is you can serve this with a cup of coffee with extra butter or jam if you wish.
Where ever I go I order banana bread with my coffee. I always noticed that there is a huge difference from cafe to cafe. Don’t try from commercial type places as they put preservatives to keep longer.
I have so many different versions of banana bread types. Please browse in my channel or under the cake section if you like banana bread.
Fresh apples are better in cakes than the canned apples. I got many requests for fresh fruit cakes and thought of doing this fresh apple cake for them. I used Granny smith apples for this cake. You can use any apple variety of apples for this cake.
Try cutting the apples to thick slices to avoid releasing much liquid to the cake. This Can be served as a dessert or even to go with a coffee. If you like more fruit cakes look in the fruit cake section.
Chunky chocolate in every bite and the beautiful banana flavour all over makes these cafe style muffins everyones favourite. I love banana in any type of a cake. These muffins are one of my favourite muffins. You can do them in a larger batch and freeze them like I do. When ever you want them its there for you in freezer.
These are good for kids lunch boxes too. Add less sugar if you don’t mind. You can cut them in half and serve with cream or ice cream too. These are cafe style muffins and they are really large. You can do them in small muffin pans too If you do them in regular ones you will get 24 muffins or more. So divide the recipe by 2 to get a smaller batch.
