1st try: (adapted from masak-masak) made once before, refer to previous 2012 post

165g banana (defrosted from frozen and pooling water removed)
130g egg
110g sugar
110 oil
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
227g flour (replace 25g with cornflour)
1 teaspoon soda bicarbonate
1/2 teaspoon salt
around 165Celcius

2nd try: (adapted from masak-masak)

My YouTube showing me making it 🙂

210g bananas – (original recipe 225g)
3 beaten eggs
100g sugar(reduced from original recipe 170g)
225g plain flour
1 teaspoon soda bicarbonate
1/4 teaspoon salt
113g oil
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

3rd try: modified from Yogurt cake, substituting some of the yogurt with banana:

120g sugar
130g yogurt
240g banana
100 oil
3 eggs
300g flour
2.5 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
nutmeg

Verdict: It felt slightly too wet, perhaps having too much liquid from the yogurt and banana?! Not memorable.

4th try:  (adapted from masak-masak)

Below are photos of all 4 tries of making banana cake, 3 of which using masak-masak’s recipe, and one using yogurt cake recipe

4th-Try-BananaCake1.JPG

4th try, using a blender as well, as the banana is not ripe enough and would be difficult to fully mash them

no visible strand, not memorable at all

Overall,  the 2nd try yield the best looking result, with beautiful banana black strand. Never use blender to make banana cake!

RSMY restaurant, famous among the Malays for their extra cheesy naan, available from 6pm onwards (although the restaurant open around 4pm onwards with briyani etc available), be sure to arrive slightly before 6pm to book a seat and it quickly fill up once 6pm approach

walking distance from Maju junction, parking can be hassle here, you might need to pay RM5 per entry parking just at the end of the road

The famous cheese naan, RM6; Dhall, RM4

RSMY7.JPG

It is extremely rich with cheese, by the end of one piece of these, you will feel really really full.

RSMY8.JPG

Side order of chickpea, just ok, RM4

Overall, it is like try once kinda eatery, it can get really filling with all the cheese, to the point of being uncomforable full, worth to try once though

Address: RSMY House of Real Briyani (Restaurant Selera MY)
11 & 13, Jalan Medan Tuanku,
Kuala Lumpur, 50300, WP Kuala Lumpur.

1/8 tsp ginger powder

Wet mixture (to be poured into dry mixture making a well in the middle)

Note{Update on 20 January 2015} this shop already closed down!

NBrew1.JPG

The amazing deal i blogged about previously is no longer available. Now, RM12.90 only comes with a main & a drink, and no dessert.

NBrew2.JPG

The set which previously was only RM12.90 is now RM17.90

NBrew3.JPG

Fine print. However, it is not bad as it is nett price and valid everyday for lunch and dinner!

NBrew4.JPG

My tomyam meehoon, not bad, not oily at all which is a plus.

Complimentary red velvet from the owner recognizing us and perhaps sensing our disappointment that the previous deal is not not available anymore 🙂 the cake is a bit dense, the icing however has a nice cream cheese flavor
