Pro Tips

  • Measure the flour carefully. Do not scoop the flour but instead spoon into the measuring cup.
  • Do not overmix the ingredients. Make sure to combine the wet and dry ingredients separately before mixing together.
  • Use the correct amount of bananas. If you use too much, the cake will fall part. If you use less than suggested, it will not be moist enough.
