This banana cake was one of the easiest to bake.  You don’t need a fancy topping on this cake: a simple sprinkling of confectioners powdered sugar does the trick. 




Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl.

  • Beat together the oil and sugar with a handheld mixer for about two minutes.
  • Add the soymilk mixture and beat until just mixed.
  • Add the mashed bananas and beat in. Make sure there are no big lumps remaining.
  • Add the flour to the banana-soymilk-oil mixture in 2 batches, beating in after each addition until the mixture is smooth. Do not overbeat, though.
  •  Line a 9-inch square pan with parchment or wax paper. Oil the paper.
  • Pour in the batter and bake 25-30 minutes in a 350-degree oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Place the cake on a rack to cool.
  • After about 10 minutes, lift out the cake by the parchment paper and place it on the rack to cool thoroughly.
  • Dust the confectioners’ sugar over the cake.
  • Cut into squares and devour!
