Apple and Banana Pound Cake Made with Pancake Mix

Apple and Banana Pound Cake Made with Pancake Mix

I tried making a pound cake with no added sugar, and wrote the recipe up here so I don't forget it. You only need few ingredients, and plus, you'll only have a couple dishes to clean up at the end.

Ingredients: 1 large pound cake

30 g
Pancake mix
200 g


1. Peel the apple and slice into thin wedges. Microwave at 500 W for 3 and 1/2 minutes, then let it cool down.
2. Mash the banana. I slice it thinly before mashing it.
3. Put the apple, banana, margarine, egg and pancake mix into a bowl in that order, and mix. Preheat the oven to 180℃.
4. Pour the batter into a tin lined with parchment paper, and bake for 35-40 minutes at 180℃.
5. Check on it while it's baking, and cover with foil after around 25-30 minutes.
6. It's done when a skewer poked through the middle comes out clean. Bake for a little longer if necessary.
7. Cover it with a moist cloth, and slice it when cooled. It might be tastier if you leave it a day before eating.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to use up some leftover apple and bananas. I didn't want to use a frying pan, so I heated the apple in the microwave. I referred to other pound cake recipes when I was making this. I tried making it with no added sugar so my small children could enjoy it.
