Simple Banana Cake Recipe | Crock Pot Style

crock pot banana cakeThis is an easy and simple crock pot banana cake recipe and you should have all the ingredients you need in your pantry or refrigerator.  I used my small crock pot but you can use a cake pan and place that in the crock pot if you wish.  The advantage of using the crock pot instead of the oven is that you can be cooking the main course in the oven and the dessert in the crock pot at the same time and the crock pot does not heat the kitchen up in summer either.

Simple Banana Cake Recipe

1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1  3/4 cups Self Raising Flour
2 medium to large ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs
3 - 4 tabs milk

Cream butter and sugar, add eggs and bananas.  Mix in flour and milk alternatively.  You may not need all the milk if you use large bananas.  Pour into a greased small crock pot or a 7-8 inch cake pan (place in crock pot).  You can also use Slow Cooker Liners to avoid any mess. Cover mixture with several pieces of paper towel and place on the lid securely.  Cook on high for 1 to 1.5 hours.  Check after an hour as my last cake cooked in that time.  This cake rises well and is quite moist.

Crock Pot banana cake cutTurn off the crock and let stand for about 10 minutes then turn out.  Lightly run a knife around the edge to release.  If using the cake pan do the same thing but remove the pan from the crock pot immediately and allow the 10 minutes to cool on the bench.   You can dust some icing sugar over the cake or ice with lemon icing or cream cheese frosting.  If using the frosting, keep leftovers in the refrigerator.

If serving as a dessert I like to place whole pecans on top of the mixture before cooking.  Use small ones or they will sink.  Alternatively you can mix them through before putting the mixture into the crock pot slow cooker.  Serve warm with ice cream or cream.

Crock Pot Christmas Cooking

Cooking at Christmas can be stressful.  I seem to spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking.  This year I am determined to prepare as much as I can beforehand so I am free to enjoy myself more.  Crock pot Christmas cooking makes life easier for you.  Also if you cook in your crock pot it frees up room in your oven for other cooking.  You can put your crock pot on in the morning and it cooking slowly during the day.  Cook the dessert in the crock pot and have the oven free for the main meal.

I have two size crock pots and the small one is good for cooking foods such as fondues and dips and even making gifts like chutneys and spiced nuts.  You can even make hot drinks such as cider in your crock pot.  Here is a recipe which I think you will enjoy for your Christmas cooking.

These are some of my tips for safe crock pot cooking.

<b>dice your vegetables</b>

dice your vegetables

DO thaw out your meat and chicken before cooking.  It will then cook evenly and thoroughly.

DONT overfill the crock pot.  Only use to 3/4 filled.

Meat cooks faster than vegetables so DO dice your vegetables, onions can be grated.  I chop my vegetables finely and I find they cook just right.   With potato and sweet potato chop into small chunks but not as finely as carrots for instance.

DONT leave food in the crock pot to cool down.  Put it in another sealed contained and refrigerate as soon as possible.  If you have a removable crock this is easier to do.

DO keep your ingredients refrigerated until you are ready to use them.  This applies especially to meats and fish.

DONT look into the crock pot as you lift the lid.  Escaping steam may burn you. Lifting the lid will also add more cooking time to your recipe.  If you have to see how things are cooking or to adjust flavors then do so quickly and with care.

DONT use red kidney beans from their raw state in the crock pot.  Soak and boil first or use the canned ones.

DO follow recommended cooking times and the manufacturer's instructions.

DONT reheat food in the crock pot.

If possible DO add hot liquids instead of cold

If you follow these tips then you will be cooking safely with your crock  pot .  I think that the most important rule above is the one about not overfilling the crock pot so please take note of that one in particular.
