Banana Cake

As winter & Christmas days are coming closer….my kitchen again started smelling cakes :-).  Just for a change instead of  chocolate or pineapple,  I made Banana cake. Oh! wow, it tastes so very nice. We just loved it. This recipe is adapted from one very old Marathi recipe book 'RUCHIRA' by Kamalabai Ogale.
All purpose flour -  2 cups
Eggs  - 2
Sugar - 1 cup
Butter - 1/2 cup
Baking soda - 1 teaspoon
Baking powder - 1 teaspoon
Salt - 1/4th teaspoon
Over ripped banana - 3
Limejuice - 1/4 teaspoon
Milk - as required

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease square pan  with butter and dust with flour. Keep it aside.  Sift all dry items that is flour, Baking powder and baking soda. Cream butter, sugar and salt.  Now add eggs and beat it nicely. Then add mashed bananas and lime juice. Mix it well. Now add the sifted flour mixture to this beaten mixture little by little and beat well till blended smoothly. You can add milk if required for the dropping consistency.  Pour this batter in greased pan. Bake it at 180 degrees C for 20-25 minutes.  Cool in the pan for few minutes. Turn out on the wire rack for cooling. Can be served warm for a breakfast.
