Again, Banana Cake

Friends visiting, again I baked this soft and spongy Banana Cake using Wen's Delight recipe. Like in my previous baked, it doesn't disappointed me. I reduced the oil used for this baked to make it more healthy for Gabriel to consume. This recipe is a sure keeper for me to try again and again :)

Recipe adpated from Wen's Delight, original from Richard Goh

5 Eggs (large size, 65-70g w/shell)
250g Sugar (used 180g)
350-400g Banana (Ripe & cut into small pcs)
300g Cake flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda (omitted)
200g Sunflower oil (or any vegetable oil except olive oil)(used 150g)

1. Preheat oven at 160 degree C. (my oven 170C)
2. Grease & line a 2 x 8" round tin (or 1 x 10" square tin) base with baking paper.
3. Sift flour, baking powder & soda together. Sift twice & set aside.
4. Whisk eggs, sugar & sliced banana at max. speed till stiff/ribbon stage. (For Kenwood Chef - approx 10-13mins)
5. Fold in sifted flour & mix well. (Can use spatular or hand to mix)
6. Add in oil & mix well till batter is shiny & flowing.
7. Pour into baking tin & bake for 40 - 45mins.
