Banana Cake Recipe That’s Better Than Sara Lee (Thermomix)

Indulge in a trip down memory lane with this remake of the beloved Sara Lee Banana Cake recipe. This iconic treat, reminiscent of my cherished childhood gatherings, holds the power to evoke nostalgia and create lasting memories.

As I remember my childhood, I remember whenever we had the joy of hosting guests, my dear mum would bring out the grand Sara Lee Banana Cake in its party-sized glory. The nostalgia and memories this cake gives me is truly special, and it inspired me bake a homemade sara lee banana cake recipe, and I think this homemade recipe could be even better. 

Kat’s tip

When bananas become overripe and begin to turn brown, I freeze them to prevent waste and later use them in my homemade banana cake, adding an extra layer of flavour and moistness.

I originally found this sara lee banana cake recipe on the recipe community, but I’ve rewritten it as I found the recipe a little hard to follow. I will remake it and share a regular recipe (not using the thermomix) with you soon.
