Banana Butter Sponge

I had bananas that were ripening on my kitchen table, try make use of it so that we don't waste that healthy fruit, right? I've been wanted to try on this banana sponge cake sharing by J3ss Kitch3n. Since there was only 2 banana left, then I just baked half of the recipe.

The cake was initially rise in the oven but then started to sink after that. I guess I never properly softened the banana, therefore the cake was a bit dense, but it was still nice and soft.

    J3ss Kitch3n,
    Thanks for sharing the recipe, this is absolutely yummy. However, I love your cake, because of the brownish colour, mine looks really pale.
