YBD Banana Cake

Updated: Apr 5, 2021

Note: This recipe will yield 4 eight inch cakes, 2 ten inch cake, or 8 six inch cakes


Granulated Sugar      4 cups (2lbs./893 g)

All Purpose Flour       6 cups (1 lbs. 14 oz./ 871 g)

Baking Soda             4 tsp. (⅝ oz./ 21 g)

Salt                         2 tsp (⅜ oz./ 14 g)

Almond Milk 2 cups (500 ml)

Water                       2 cups (500 ml)

Vegetable oil              1 ½ cups (350 ml)

White Vinegar           2 T. (1 oz by weight/26 g)

Vanilla Extract           2 T. (1 oz by weight/ 26 g)

Bananas                    4 each

Note: You can use any milk alternative in place of the almond milk.  That includes real milk as well.


1. Preheat the oven to 350 F or 176 C. Grease two 10-inch round cake pans with pan spray and set aside. 

2. In a stand mixer fitted with the whip attachment add the sugar, flour, baking soda and salt on low speed. This will sift the dry ingredients for you while you prepare your wet ingredients.

3. Measure your wet ingredients while the dry ingredients are sifting.  Add the vinegar to the milk and the vanilla to the water.

4. With the mixer on low, add the oil,  milk mixture and about ¾ of the water. Once this is smoother, add the remaining water.

5. Puree the bananas and add to the batter. Mix until smooth.

6. Separate batter into your pans evenly (they will each get about 3 cups of batter).  Bake for 35-45 minutes or until set.

Do overripened bananas work in this recipe? :)

For everyone who likes to use a scale:

800g sugar

790g flour

4 ts backing soda (= Natron)

2 ts salt

500ml Almondmilk

500ml Wasser

2 Tbs vinegar

350ml oil

1 Tbs vanilla extract

4 bananas

I measured everything with cups and put it on a scale instead of using reference charts. When I make the recipe, I use 600g sugar instead of 800g (1 cup less). Works fine for me!
