One-bowl Butterscotch Cake with Banana Frosting

Butterscotch and banana go beautifully together. Having had some ripe bananas and butterscotch chips which were also sitting in my pantry for sometime, I decided to use them together. Of course, it was a cake – what else could it be?

The cake was so moist and lovely. The butterscotch morsels and the banana frosting tasted great. Just the thing with a hot cup of tea in the evening. Delicious!

You can also make cupcakes and frost them individually.

 

PREP: 20-25 minutes COOK TIME: 35-40 minutes

Ingredients

2 cups flour

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp baking powder

11/2 cups brown sugar, packed

½ cup butter

1 cup milk

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup butterscotch chips

For the banana frosting

2 cups powdered sugar

1/3 cup butter

1 tbsp lemon juice

¼ cup bananas, mashed

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180 C.

Grease and flour an 8 inch cake pan.

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt. Combine with the brown sugar, butter and 2/3 cup milk in a large mixing bowl. Beat at a low speed until blended and then at a high speed for 2 minutes. Add remaining milk, eggs and vanilla and beat for 2 minutes longer. Fold in the butterscotch chips and spoon the batter into the cake pan and bake for 30-35 minutes until the sides pull away slightly from the the tin and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool.

While the cake is baking, prepare the frosting. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the lemon juice and mashed bananas and beat until smooth. Fill and frost the cake.

A Hint Of Spice

Hi. I am Padma and I am passionate about delicious food. Food is amazing in that it can take you to another place and time in your life just by the taste, smell and touch. Even a photograph evokes memories that lie dormant within us. I still remember a coconut candy that I used to eat as a child. Even though it’s not available now, I clearly remember the taste. It takes me back to my childhood pleasures as nothing else can. Being Indian, my palate is so used to spices. I started experimenting by mixing spices with European and other Western cuisines. The result is truly delicious. I love trying out different spices with different recipes. Sometimes I use the powder and sometimes I grind the spices with other herbs, onions, etc in the blender. The result is quite spectacular – a lovely fusion of the East and West. I hope you like my recipes and are inspired enough to try out a few of them. I would love to hear back from you.
