The video below shows the process of preparing the batter:

—Directions—

1) Preheat the oven to 80 degrees Celsius and add baking paper into the cake pan and grease it to prevent the cake from sticking to the pan.
2) Soften the plain flour by using the sifter into a large bowl. Add ½ teaspoon baking powder into it. Mix the flour and powder.
3) Mix the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl using an electric mixer. Add the eggs one at a time into the mixture. Mix until it becomes creamy.

6) Sliced up the bananas and mash it in a bowl. Then mix the bananas into the batter. If you want you can now add additional toppings such as walnuts or raisins. In my case I transfer half of the batter into the cake pan for plain banana cake, while the other half I mixed some raisins and walnuts into it as shown below.

7) Your batter is ready for baking. Place it in the oven and bake for about 80 mins. To check if it is ready, use a chopstick and poke it into the center of the cake. It is ready if there is no wet batter sticking onto the chopstick. Remove the cakes from the oven and place the pan upside down onto a oven grill and let it cool.
