The Hand-Mashing Tip For The Fluffiest Banana Cake
By S. Ferrari
Overripe bananas are perfect for a moist and cloud-like banana cake, especially when you mash them with your hands. Start by putting your peeled bananas in a zip-top bag.
Smash the bananas with your hands until they reach a smooth consistency inside the bag. The mushier your bananas, the fluffier your cake will become.
While the bananas won't be as smooth as a puree from a food processor, this convenient method will still result in creamy, mashed bananas.
This technique works even if your bananas haven't reached your preferred ripeness. Consistent results rely on your bananas being the same ripeness each time you make your cake.
