Forgive me. I’m going to make your mouth water… :9
One of pleasant surprises on the last day of 2011 was this very inviting loaf of Banana-Cashew-Raisin Cake. The name is quite a mouthful but you won’t have any doubts about what’s in the unassuming but gorgeous-looking loaf. I call it the “BCR Cake” for obvious brevity and to put in a hint of mystery~
Nope, I did not bake this. I merely had the delightful honor of doing a photoshoot with it, and then having it (with its best breakfast buddy, good old coffee! ♥) as my last breakfast for the year 2011. This was my part of good friend’s homemade hobbies. I asked for the recipe so I can share it with you along with these delicious looking pictures~ *nom nom nom*
Banana Cashew Raisin Cake Recipe
♨ 2 1/2 cups cake flour
♨ 2 teaspoons baking powder
♨ 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
♨ 1 teaspoon vanilla
♨ 3 eggs
♨ 1/2 cup butter, softened
♨ 2 cups white sugar
♨ 6-8 pieces banana (preferably lacatan), mashed
♨ 1 cup cashew nuts, coarsely chopped
♨ 1 cup raisin
1. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Sift and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, cream butter, and then mix sugar and eggs. Beat in flour mixture. Stir in mashed banana, chopped nuts, and raisins. Pour into prepared pan.
3. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
Most important step: serve and enjoy! ♥ The cake loaf looks even prettier sliced, arranged, and basking in the early morning sunshine~ :)
The recipe looks so simple, right? How about trying it out and then share with us how your BCR Cake turns out. Pictures would be lovely! ♥ I bet looking at all these pictures made you hunger for some sweets~ :9
