TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling YIELD:12 servings


  • 5 eggs, separated
  • 2-1/4 cups cake flour

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana (about 2 medium)

  • 1. Let eggs stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks, oil, water and vanilla; add to dry ingredients along with bananas. Beat until well blended. In another large bowl and with clean beaters, beat egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold into yolk mixture.
  • 2. Gently spoon batter into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake on lowest rack at 325° for 60-65 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Immediately invert baking pan; cool completely. Run a knife around sides and center tube of pan.
