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, 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!
