Banana Cake With Rice Flour

Banana cake with rice flour.
Once I have added rice flour in cake by mistake. But loved the texture and taste. It was super soft.
Now here is a banana cake with rice flour.

What do you do with the over ripe bananas. Nobody wants to eat in my home. Try this banana cake recipe with over ripe bananas and see how it finished so fast.

Ripe banana contains a high concentration of dietary fiber, vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B-6 and antioxidant compounds.

And over ripe bananas with dark spots in it is more effective in enhancing the property of white blood cells.

The more darker patches it has the higher will be its immunity enhancement quality. Riper the banana the better the anti–cancer quality.

So don’t throw away the over ripe banana. Use them in cake, muffins or cup cakes.

Beat the sugar with oil. I like less sweet so I have used 3/4 cup sugar but you can add 1 cup if you like.

Now add the mashed bananas and vinegar mixed milk. Mix well.
Add all the dry ingredients and vanilla. Mix well.

If you feel the batter is dry add some milk more.
