Apple Cinnamon Banana Bread


I served  a slice of this Apple Cinnamon Banana Bread to my partner after dinner. "Apple mai cho like that. Boh ho chiak one" (Don't do this with apples. It doesn't taste good). Aiyah. My customer is not happy. But that was before he ate the cake.

As he chewed, he nodded his head and commented that the cake was not too sweet and it was just nice. I think he is still spooked by my Rustic Apple Cake. But never mind his opinion, I had earlier whacked 4 slices of the cake. I thought it was very nice - very moist banana, apple and cinnamon flavor.


You can see that the cake is too moist.

Another comment he made was that the cake was too wet. Agreed, it was on the moist side and it was due to me putting too much mashed bananas and diced apples into the cake. It was a case of less is more. Don't overdo the filling or else it will backfire.

    2. Claire, I have given up hoping and dreaming la. Not sure whether PH is too shy or too worried to meet me. I have been spying around Uptown area to catch her. Last night I saw one lady that 'resembled' her who went to tapao dinner from Tar Chong Mixed Rice shop. Wakakakaka

  6. It does look a bit moist but the chunky pieces of apples and bananas more than made up for it. I am drooling over the cake.

    1. Like that you can finish one whole loaf in a day. It's nice on the day it is baked but next day not so good.

  13. Hi Phong Hong, my hubby makes similar comments like this whenever I serve him something with bananas. He always have the idea that bakes with bananas wouldn't last long and he is very careful if it is still good even freshly baked. Hai Yah....
