White Chocolate Banana pistachio cake

Pin It Now!
This cake actually is a mission to clear stuff from my pantry. Pistachio nuts which leftover from Chinese New Year (Yes! more than 6 months :p It is not nice to consume directly). White chocolate which I bought quite sometimes and still nicely sealed untouched. I have some very ripe bananas in fridge too. So in order to get rid of them I bake this white chocolate banana pistachio cake.

Believe it or not this is my 1st time adding nuts inside my cake. All along I thought I dislike nuts inside my cake just like I dislike nuts inside my chocolate bar. This cake proves me wrong as I like the texture of nuts in my cake bites! Next time going to bake more with nuts! :D

I use very little sugar as the sweetness from the white chocolate is sufficient to sweeten the whole cake.

This cake is very moist and soft. Do you agree?

80g butter, softened
20g sugar
2 eggs
100g white chocolate, chopped
1 tsp vanilla extract
250g banana (mashed)

1 1/2 cups low protein flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

50g pistachio (lightly crushed)
*I use ready to eat type. Remove the hard shell. Put into plastic bag and crush with rolling pin.

1. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

2. With double boiler method melt chocolate until smooth when stirred.
*or heating in 30 second intervals in microwave. Stir well with a fork between each interval. Cook until chocolate is smooth when stirred.

3. Beat butter and sugar until light and creamy.

4. Add in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Follow by melted chocolate, vanilla and mashed banana.

5. Add in dry ingredients and fold to combine.

6. Pour batter into lined baking pan (I baked in
L21cm x W10cm x H11cm  sandwich tin) and sprinkle top with some crushed pistachios nuts.

7. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180c for 40-45 minutes or until done when tested with a skewer.

8. Remove from mould and cool on wire rack. Like other butter cake it is best to serve the next day. Enjoy!

  3. This cake looks delicious! :)

  4. I love recipes that clean out the pantry! There's always stuff that I never seem to use that gets lost at the back of the shelf and this looks like a wonderful way to use them up. So moist and so delicious... Thanks so much for sharing, Vivian!

  5. My mom always bake this White Chocolate Banana pistachio cake because its the family's favorite. We would be coming hime early if she tells us that she'll be baking it. Its a total riot at home.

  6. hi Vivian, looks so delicious!
    same as u, i used to dislike nutty cakes, somehow recently i had a change of heart towards nuts, especially almonds, walnuts, cashew and pistachios
    they're yummeh! :)

  7. Hi Vivian, that looks lovely. Normally people go down the dark choc/walnut route with banana cake so it's nice to see a different direction. Pistachios go so well with white chocolate. Yum!

  8. Your cake looks delicious and very moist too. I love nuts in my cakes or muffins as they added the extra crunch to it.

  9. lezatnyaaaa.....
    jadi ingin makan kue.
