This Easy Banana Cake is great for using up over ripe bananas in the fruit bowl. This delectable cake is incredibly moist and takes no time at all to throw together.
This simple cake is made by quite simply throwing all the ingredients in a food processor and blitzing it until combined!
This cake is so good, it really doesn’t need the icing. It could be also served with just powdered sugar on top and nothing else! I swear I could eat it for breakfast!
I made this cake for my husband who was requesting banana bread, It came out unbelievably moist and delicious. I had a friend come over the following day for coffee.
I was in the middle of making a different cake when she arrived, but she saw this one and had to try it. She ate three pieces! Needless to say, I owe my husband another banana cake!
Tip: If you have fresh bananas that aren’t very ripe, just warm them in the microwave for 30 seconds. It will allow you to mash the bananas easier.
After that, it’s easy – just throw all the ingredients in the food processor and blitz on the lowest setting until combined (don’t over blitz though or your cake could turn out too dense).

If you’re in the UK, click here),(As an Amazon Associate, a small commission is made from qualifying purchases), the cake came out of the pan by just flipping the pan over onto the cooling rack. No struggling at all!
I apologize if the preparation photos haven’t been great lately, but the dark and grey season has started in England and my kitchen is definitely not filled with a lot natural light.
Bake in a bundt pan for 30-35 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
I always allow bundt cakes to cool completely before removing them from the pan.
Once cooled, ice the cake with a simple drizzle icing.
