Add the water or soy milk into the banana and mix lightly.
Combine all the ★ dry ingredients with the Step 3 mixture. It's better to sift the ★ ingredients, but it's not necessary.
Pour the batter into the pound cake pan , and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Insert a bamboo stick and if it comes out without gooey batter on it, it is done!
If the surface of the pound cake is not quite brown yet, bring the oven temperature to the highest setting and bake it for a few more minutes. It burns easily, so keep an eye on it!!
Once it cools down, take it out of the pan, slice it into desired thickness, and enjoy.
Story Behind this Recipe
I made a second version banana pound cake without any butter or oil as a snack or breakfast for my son who loves bananas. It's easy since it uses just one bowl, doesn't require any sifting, and minimizes the dishes to wash.
The bananas give a mild sweetness to the cake, so no sugar is needed.
The cooking time may vary depending on the type and size of your oven or on material of the pan that you are using. You can freeze the leftovers, then microwave them when you are ready to eat.
