Recipe Source: Everybody eats well in Flanders,You can find the original recipe here.
Prep Time: 10 minutes .
Cooking Time: 60 to 80 minutes
Makes: 8″ Cake

  1. Banana,mashed- 1 and 1/4 cups( about 5 medium)
  2. Sugar – 3/4 cup
  3. Vegetable oil or melted butter – 3/4 cup
  4. Vanilla extract – 1 tsp
  5. Eggs – 4
  6. All purpose flour,lightly spooned into measuring cup and leveled off- 1 and 1/4 cups
  7. Baking powder – 1 tsp
  8. Baking Soda – 1 tsp
  9. Salt – 1/8 tsp


  • In a mixing bowl,mash the bananas using a fork.Keep aside until required.

  • In a mixing bowl,combine together sugar,vegetable oil ( or butter) and vanilla extract.Add the eggs ,mix well using a whisk or a fork, until well combined.

  • Now add the mashed bananas .

  • Mix well until combined.In another mixing bowl combine together all purpose flour,baking powder,baking soda and salt using a fork.

  • Add this to the banana mixture and gently mix until combined.

  • Pour the batter into a lightly grease rice cooker pot.Press cook and let it cook for about 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.

  • If it switches itself to ” Keep warm” ,flip it back to cook.If it refuses to stay there ,wait for few minutes and then press cook.(I had to press the cook button 6 times, during the total cooking time of 80 minutes.)

  • Allow it to cool slightly before turning it onto a plate.


    • I used a 1.5 ltr push lever type rice cooker with a non- stick pot. 
    • The cooking time depends upon the type / volume of the rice cooker you use.So  the cooking time can be anywhere between 45 to 80 minutes.
    • Do not open the rice cooker too often to check for doneness,as this may affect the cooking time.Make sure you do not open the rice cooker for at least the first 30 minutes of cooking.

                I am sure you can bake this cake in a pressure cooker,i tmay take almost 40 to 50 minutes ,but i haven't tried it though.
                Check the recipe for' Pressure cooker vanilla cake ' to get details about baking in a pressure cooker.
                alternately, you can also steam the cake for about 45 minutes using a steamer .
                Do let me know okie…

              Done it, nailed it!
              Made two of'em 1 in a pressure cooker and the other in a Microwave. Was good to experiment with both.
              However the findings are, 1/8 tsp should be 1/2 tsp for better taste. Sugar can come down a notch for those who prefer less sweet. Brown sugar – sugar ratio 1:1 will also work fine here. Vanilla does an amazing job of canceling the egg smell and gives banana to do its job. 1/2 cup milk will help retain the moisture and keep the cake fluffy with boost from the eggs,if microwaved. Rest all was fine and dandy. Nice recipe. Cheers! Vipul Tamhane
