Preparation of Cake:

Prepare a 9” x 5” baking pan (I used an 8” x 4” pan and so you can see ears for my cake J) lined with butter and dusted with flour. Preheat the oven at 350 F.

Mix the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Sift the mix 4 -5 times.

Smash the bananas with a fork and keep aside.  

Beat the butter and sugar until they are well combined. Add the eggs one after the other, beating them until they are well combined.
