Guest Post #7: Easiest Banana Cake

Hi everyone, can you believe it? Finally, I am this close to Graduation (Imagine me pinching my pointer finger with my thumb) 😀 – And with graduation comes performances, baking, class parties, baking, muck up days and lots of baking!

Before I graduate though, here I am ploughing through my workload because before every beautiful part of life, comes this hideous, clawing at your neck part known as my final exams. Eep! And because I cannot bake my butt off right now, I would like you to enjoy a huge range of wonderful guest posters especially chosen just for you! 

So close to the end of school, I can taste it! Au revoir mes cheris!

D’accord, je voudrais vous présenter une bloggeuse francaise qui est jeune comme moi en comparaison avec les autres bloggers. Elle a seulement dix-sept ans mais elle est la meilleure photographe est je l’aime parce que elle faire cuire les gâteux incroyables avec, bien sur, beaucoup de chocolat. Aussie, elle est trop gentille et créatif 🙂

Je suis très contente que elle a préparé un ‘guest post’ pour moi, et je sais que vous l’adorerez, sans doute! Alors, s’il vous plait, Faites un accueil chaleureux a Mrs DeYarmond par Weight And Measures!

*Translation – I just thought because this awesome French blogger wrote her post for me in English, she deserved some French from a girl learning it at school – sorry if it was a little broken 😛

Ok, I would like to present to you a French blogger who is young like me comparatively. She is only 17 years old but she is the best photographer and I love her because she bakes incredible cakes with, of course, a lot of chocolate. She is also too sweet and creative 🙂

I am very happy that she prepared a guest post for me, and I know you all will love her, without a doubt! So, please give a warm welcome to Mrs DeYarmond from Weight And Measures!


Hi ! My name is Sarah and I am a french blogger (so pardon my english!) but I am able to translate every recipe I post in english.
When I received a mail from Uru, I was so excited. First, because she is probably one of my favorite blogger, but also cause I knew that it meant…. GUEST POST!


You know, I was so jealous of those amazing bloggers invited to write a post on Uru’s blog. She is so talented and she always managed to find incredible blogger. She was one of the first blog I subscribed to, and till that day, I didn’t miss any post. The day I realized she had subscribe to mine, I was like a kid. And I’m so honoured to be here. She always leaves something kind on my posts, and this guest post sounds like a blessing for a young blogger like me who started her blog less than a year ago.


So today I am so excited to present you my recipe ! Because, to my mind, Uru is a really extraordinary and exotic person, I wanted to bake something new, far from my usual “chocolate cake” (but they are good too, don’t worry haha). – I attest to that, they are better than good!
Pay attention world… This is the easiest banana cake : your guests will ask you to do it again ;)!


Easiest Banana Cake


  • 3 bananas + 1 for decoration
  • 135g of flour
  • 2g of baking soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2g of baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 110g of sugar
  • 40g melted butter
  • 30g of milk


  1. Preheat your oven at 210°C
  2. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. In an another bowl, blend sugar and egg.
  4. Then, add the melted butter and milk.
  5. Then, mash 3 bananas and add them to the last preparation.
  6. To finish, put the dry ingredients on the others and blend till it’s homogeneous.
  7. Put it in the oven during 25min.
  8. While it cools, take a banana and cut little slices. When the cake will be cool, put these slices on the top of the cake. I sprinkled the cake with some shredded coconut.


I hope you liked this recipe ! This is really easy and really quick to do. A huge thank you to my friend Uru, you are such a doll and that was more than a pleasure to write this guest post !

Love from France !


Aaaah, j’ai très faim, un fruit préféré de moi est la banane! Je pourrais manger le gâteau sans partager avec ma famille! Merci beaucoup pour ce ‘guest post’ mon amie, je sais que tout le monde a l’adore! 

Maintenant, vous devez visiter Sarah, pardonnez-moi, Mrs DeYarmond, a Weights And Measures – Si vous ne parlez pas le francais, ce n’est pas probleme avec la tranduction de Google 🙂

*Translation: Aaaah, I am very hungry, banana is one of my favourite fruits! I could eat the cake without sharing with my family! Thank you so much for this guest post my friend, I know that everyone loved it!

Now, you must visit Sarah, pardon me, Mrs DeYarmond, at Weights And Measures – if you don’t speak French, it is not a problem with Google Translation 🙂

    Sarah (aka Mrs. DeYarmond), I attempted to leave a comment on your blog twice but the translator “kicked me out.” No matter! Your banana cake, as well as your enthusiasm for Miss Uru, and the freshly sliced banana and coconut topping on this delectable treat, left me agreeing with you & Uru completely. “I could eat the cake without sharing with my family.” Merci.


    • Bloody translator ! Thanks for that sweet comment ! it’s so adorable !
      This is definitly the easiest banana bread I know and I’m glad to see that you all liked it !
      Lots of love and welcome in my blog ! xxx

    So great to read that you are so close to your Graduation – a pity I’m so fare away .. to be able to eat all those cakes and cookies that will be served … Congratulation, my friend.
    Sarah, your English is just fine .. don’t worry … I write on Swenglish all the time.
    I’m not much of a baking person, but I love reading about cake making and look at the photos, but this cake I will make .. this weekend. Easy .. and I love bananas.
    If there is one thing I have point out … in your recipe .. never measure milk in gram – it’s always in volume. Me, the old chef. *smile
    Really like you cake … and I know I will enjoy every slice of it – because I’m going to eat it on my own.

    French just happens to our second national language in Canada. Everyone must take it at school, I think they start kids in grade four these days, in my day it was grade five! Even though I have nine years of French education I am unable to speak it, although I can read and write it well enough to be understood!
    I adore banana bread, but I haven’t made it in years. Since this recipe is so easy, I’ll have to give it a try soon! Now I’m going to check out your lovely guest post’s blog!
