p/s Aunty, can you design a yam cake with yam frosting for me as I'm keen to bake it for my best friend's b'day.

Yuri said...

Hi aunty, other than the banana cake layer, did you incorporate a "no-frills" cake layer either on top or below?

How long did you steam this cake and what size pan did you use? TIA

hi aunty, thx for sharing the recipe. just wonder if i could steam the 'top layer'first followed by the banana layer cos i think the banana layer looks nicer on top.

Anonymous said...

Dear aunty,

Do you need to cover the cake with aluminium foil during the steaming??

Thanks

Alison

yochana said...

Dear Alison,

You can cover with aluminium foil if you find that your steaming has water dripping onto your cake. Some steamer doesn't have this problem , so no need to cover. It's optional actually.

rgds

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

My advice to you is to steam the banana cake layer first then the plain egg layer on top because the banana layer is heavier and it will press the plain layer down and it will it not look nice. You can turn it upside down like me when you serve...both ways are acceptable.

Hi Lucy,

Thanks for posting the recipe. :)

Tried the Ma Lai Koh & turns out great! ;D
Cos i've never like those which sells outside as the texture is rough.

Will try this banana cake next week but will skip the top layer as prefer all to be banana. ;)

Hi caecilia,

Wow...dog's shoes...what on earth are those for? Winter time to keep the paws warm? I bet our friend "putu piring" would like it for her 15 years old Dog who is so attached to her.

Chris said...

Hi Aunty Lucy,

Thks for the recipe. Your bake look so nice and yummy. I just tried baking this and it didn't turn out that well. The sponge layer turned out very dense and had a very strong "eggy" smell.Could it be that i didn't beat the egg long enough? The banana layer rose a lot more in the centre and refused to go down so my sponge layer was covering more of the sides than the centre. It looked kinda of funny. Any advice on how I can make my cake better? Would like to try again. Thks and regds. Chris

Anonymous said...

Hi Lucy
May I know what type of banana you are using?

Anonymous said...

hi, can i use an all purpose flour ?
do you mean by / or.
thank you.

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

Ya..you can use all purpose flour. No problem at all.

rgds

yochana said...

Hi May,

I used "Del Monte" bananas. Easily available.

rgds

yochana said...

Hi chris,

mmm....funny.

I made the banana portion and while it's steaming inside, I had to rush off to office so I asked my maid to do the topping for me. I instructed her according to my method and tada....it was beautifully done.

I think you try using 2 smaller loaf pans instead of 1 big loaf pan and try again. Use a spoon to push the banana batter more to the side instead of a big lump in the middle.

Hi Yochana,
Yesterday I attended “RC” dinner and when I returned at 11:30 pm I saw your message inquiring “dog’s shoes!!" I posted the reply but it did not appear.
“About dog’s shoes”….. Dogs do wear shoes, they must be trained to wear shoes when they are young say round 6 months old.
If you are interested to see how they look like, do give me your email address I’ll show you some pics of them which I have made

Hi Aunty Yochana,
Thanks for the recipe and I really admire you that have wonderful baked items and dessert everyday/almost. I would like to try this recipe, but may I know the pan size? Appreciate your time. Thanks!!

yochana said...

Hi chris,

I used two small loaf pans of about 6" each. You can also bake in a normal sq tray of about 7" sq.

hi,
i have a question, i tried your cake and my banana layer was very dark not like your cake , what may be the reason? i use a beautifull banana?
thank you

Bae said...

hi aunty,

if i skip the top layer, how long do i have to steam the banana layer, is it 15 to 20 minutes? will it cook by 15 minutes if i'm using 8" round cake mould?

bae

yochana said...

Hi Bae,

In that case, steam for 25 to 30 mins. Test with a skewer.

Dear Aunty yochana, thank you for a wonderful recipe. It tasted really good. My hubby & mom loves all cakes steamed!

Anonymous said...

Hi Aunty,

Can I use sunflower oil instead of cornoil? and

Can I use the bamboo steamer to steam the soft banana cake? If so, do I need to cover the loaf pan with aluminum foil?

Many thanks :)

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

yes you can use cornoil instead.

Yes you can use bamboo steamer. No need to cover with aluminium foil.

Leo said...

I'm from Malaysia. May i know what's Del monte banana in malay? Is it the long type "pisang embun? or the short and fat type? I noticed some banana doesn't give the tiny black strips like what banana cake used to have. Thanks

yochana said...

Hi Leo,

Del Monte bananas comes from Philippines and I think Malaysia has another name for it.

Rita said...

Yochana

I made this cake today. The banana layer came out alright but the sponge layer was very "tough". Any reason for that?

It tastes good tho and thanks for sharing recipe

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Rita,

It means that the batter has been deflated when you stir it.

Hi Aunty,

I'm not really good in baking any cake but i managed to steam this banana cake...so excited.

but..can i asked how come the inside part v.hard to get cook. The outside turns out very good.

Aunty Yochana said...

hi anonymous,

did you use a 3 tiered steamer or a wok?

a wok normally does not do a good job for steamed cakes.

rgds

Anonymous said...

Hi Aunty,

No wonder. I used wok..

Btw, my col said very nice..Thanks to you for sharing this recipe to us. :o)

Annie said...

Hi Aunty Yochana,

I tried baking this cake twice but both times it didn't turn out looking nice. I used a square 7" tin but the banana layer rose high in the centre aft steaming. Hence the plain layer was not able to be evenly spread on top n it also didn't rise n turn out tough n chewy. Hwr, the banana layer taste nice thou.

Pls help! Wat could hv possibly went wrong!

Rgds,
Annie

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Annie

You could have overstirred the batter.

rgds

Annie said...

Hi Aunty Yochana,

Overstirred the batter that's why my egg sponge layer din rise or my banana layer rising too much in the centre?

I had the same problem as one of the comments & u advised her to spread the banana batter to the sides but the batter was too watery to spread lei...! U don't mean steam for awhile then spread before it's cook rite?

Also do I steam at high or medium heat?

Aiyoh Aunty! Very sad that I juz can't get it rite lei..

Anonymous said...

Hi Aunty, is the batter to be lumpy or smooth and runny?
