Slow Cooked Banana Cake | Stay at Home Mum


  1. Into a large bowl add the eggs, oil, sugars (both) and vanilla. Combine using a whisk.

  2. Add the mashed bananas, and stir until well mixed.

  3. On to that add the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Sifting it is highly recommended. Also, throw in your spices and stir to combine.

  4. Pour batter into your prepped slow cooker and spread it until it is one layer that's even and relatively flat. Set aside for a moment.

  5. In a large bowl, add the brown sugar to the clove and combine. The cloves are optional, but we really liked the little kick.

  6. Then add the boiling water and whisk until a sauce form. Pour this sauce over the banana bread mix in the slow cooker, but do not stir it. As the bread cooks the sauce will thicken and become heavenly, but do not stir at any point.

  7. Pop the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high for around 1 1/2 to 2 hours. You can pop a tea towel over your cake between the lid to soak up any condensation if you like, but the presence of it will depend on your cooker. All slow cookers are different, so keep a close eye on your bread from the 60-minute mark to make sure you don't overdo it. When it's done the edges of the cake will be set, and the colour will be a light golden brown. You can check the bread by sticking a toothpick into the middle.

  8. Remove the ceramic bowl out of the slow cooker to let the bread cool a little before serving. This bowl will be hot so be very careful.
