Banana bread and sweet condensed milk cake.

Two quick cake recipes

Today I baked two cakes (banana bread and sweet condensed milk cake), because one of my sons didn’t went to school to celebrate the day before Independence Day, where cakes and juice are distributed to all children. I don’t make fancy cakes at home — they’re simple, ugly😅, mostly without eggs (for my mother-in-law is vegetarian) and butter, and with little to no oil; the cakes I make are alternate versions of the simple yoghurt cake (1 cup of natural yoghurt, take that same cup and fill it with oil, 2.5 cup of self-raising flour, two cup of sugar, 3 eggs, and any flavour of your choice. Mix everything (a big spoon or manual hand whisk does the thing very well). Cook for 40mins at 180 degrees in a pre-heated oven). I love rapid, simple, and easy measurable recipes; and yoghurt cake is my favourite baking treat because it’s so easy to measure. Thus, since I learned how to bake the quick and easy yoghurt cake, I now use a cup of yoghurt as measure for every cake I make; it’s way more easy, I love how such hack simplifies my baking life.

Here’s the ingredients for each cake:

1) Ingredients for the eggless, butterless, and oiless banana bread (bananas are already sweet, no need to add sugar), with empty cup of yoghurt as measure:

  • 2 cups of crushed bananas (by hand or by fork).
  • 2.5 cups of self-raising flour + half teaspoon of baking powder (for all-purpose flour, add one and half teaspoon of baking powder).
  • Half cup of milk.
  • Vanilla flavour (optional).

Mix everything together in a bowl, and cook for 40 mins at 180 degrees in pre-heated oven.

Ready to go into the oven.

2) Ingredients for the sweet condensed milk cake (that one is very sweet, good to drink with sugarless hot beverages), with empty cup of yoghurt as measure

  • 2 cups of sweet condensed milk (to cut the sweetness, you can replace one of the cup by water, or milk).
  • 2.5 cups of self-raising flour + half teaspoon of baking powder (for all-purpose flour, add one and half teaspoon of baking powder).
  • Half cup of milk.
  • And half cup of water, or more, if ever the mixture is too thick.

Mix everything together in a bowl, and cook for 40 mins at 180 degrees in pre-heated oven.

And voila! Two a-la-va-vite cake recipes that I often bake, but always in different flavours.
