Almond and Banana Cake

Saw a recipe (Macadamia and Banana Cupcakes) at The Sunday Times, Jan 30 2011, was tempted to do it, but i make some changes in it and also i use half of the recipe and make it into a cake instead of cupcake.

Original Recipe :

Macadamia and Banana Cupcakes (The Sunday Time Jan 30, 2011)

Ingredients :

250g banana
165g white sugar
215g unsalted butted, melted (I did not melted the butter)
4 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/2 tsp baking powder (I use double action baking powder as i have run out of baking powder)
230g self-raising flour (I use cake flour as i do not have self-raising flour)
80g macadamia nuts, ground (I use ground almond as i have it at home)


1. Slice the bananas and use a fork to mash them into a thick paste. Leave some banana chunks to give the cupcakes more bites.

2. Whisk the white sugar and melted butter together for two to three minutes till light and fluffy.

(I whisk the white sugar and butter together as i did not melted the butter - too lazy to melted it)

3. Add the eggs, one at a time, and continue whisking.

4. Whisk in vanilla essence.

5. Sift cinnamon powder, baking powder and flour into the wet mixture. Fold the mixture till it is evening mixed.

6. Add the banana paste and ground macadamia nuts (I add in grounded almond since i use that) ito the mixture. Fold till the ingredients are well-distributed.

7. Preheat the oven to 180 deg C.

8. With a spoon, scoop the mixture into cupcake cups. (I pour the mixture into a baking tin since i'm baking it into a cake)

9. Bake the cupcakes in the oven at 180 deg C for 20 t0 25 minutes, depending on the size of the cupcake. (I bake for 60 minutes)

The other day, at the supermarket, i heard a lady mention that Korea strawberry is not sour (i ever buy strawberry, but it is sour), so bought 1 box, and i have put some strawberry into the cake also.

Thank you Sock Peng for the card

我和祥先生 and Ching 再次见面了!!! ~ 13th Feb


At first, i was worry whether this round, will i be able to meetup with her as i have a gathering on Sat and won't know what time it end and on sun, Ching has something to attend to. Suppose to meet her on Sat late evening after going to my ex cell group leader house, but in the end, could not make it as at first, i wanted to take a ride from a friend to Clementi MRT before proceeding to Causeway Point to meetup with her. When my ex cell group leader ask me when am i going to, i told him that i'm going Woodland, he keeps persuade me to go church with them (cell group members) as the church is in Woodland area, as he has keeps asking me before a few time to join them, this round, i couldn't rejected so have to postpone my meetup with 祥先生 and Ching to sun before 祥先生 and Ching attended to their things and i went to LJ house.

Ching has ask me for my address the other time as she mention she wanted to send me her 姐妹照, but i didn't give her as i told her, when we meetup, she can hand it to me, so in the end, she could not send me the 贺年卡. 谢谢 Ching的贺年卡.

我又有口福了,吃到 Ching homemade cookies

As i'm going LJ house after meeting Ching, i share some of these cookies with her family.

谢谢Ching 的 homemade cookies and also muffins

Look forward to meet u again when u shift to stay in Singapore.
