Banana Sourcream Cake

Since I had a couple of large bananas overripening, I baked this for teatime. Oh I really love this cos' it's so moist and soft. I adapted the recipe from HERE and used a tub of sourcream for the bake.


180 g salted butter
180 g caster sugar
3 nos. medium eggs
250 g cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp soda bicarbonate
100 g mashed bananas
1 tub Bulla sourcream


Cream butter and sugar till light , fluffy and creamy.

Add beaten eggs, mashed bananas and sourcream till all blended.

Add in the cake flour mixture with the baking powder and soda bicarbonate.

Pour the batter into a lined 8" round cake pan.

Decorate with sliced bananas if you like.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degree C for about 60 minutes or till skewer comes out clean.

Hi liew
It is a leavening agent. It makes the cake rise. If you do a yahoo or google search it will give you a lot more information regarding this chemical.
