Some of us are good at cooking.

Others, not so much.

Add baking to the mix and you either hat it or love it.

Some people have to enroll themselves in baking schools just to learn how to make a cake.

It’s expensive and time-consuming.

If you’re always busy with work or household chores, that might not work for you.

Fortunately, there are tons of cake recipes online.

A video of a cake recipe is going viral on the internet.

The recipe isn’t just super easy to make but it doesn’t require tons of ingredients and complicated measurements, too.

In fact, you’ll need no more than 10 ingredients to make the cake.

With how simple it is, it’s not surprising why the video has gained more than 5 million views!

Here’s how to make the famous cake with one egg in the pan:

1. Start by preparing the bananas.

Get two ripe bananas and take off the peel. Cut them into small pieces.

2. Apply olive oil to your pan.

You can use a brush for this step. Make sure that the entire surface of the pan is coated with the oil. Also, remember to use a pan that’s large enough for the cake. It’ll help you achieve that perfectly shaped cake after.

3. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sugar.

You can use either brown or white sugar. This step is to caramelize the bananas.

4. Place the slices of bananas on the pan.

There’s no special way to arrange the bananas. Just make sure that you create a single layer on the pan.

5. Get one egg and crack it open in a bowl.

9. Combine 1 1/4 cup of flour and 2 teaspoons of baking powder.

Sift them before adding them to the egg mixture. Use a whisk to combine everything in the bowl.

10. Once you’ve achieved the right texture, take the mixture and pour it over the pan lined with bananas.

Do this step slowly. Make sure all the pieces are covered completely.

11. Cook the cake for 30 minutes over low heat.

Remember to cover the pan to ensure proper cooking.

12. After that, turn the cake over.

Let it cook for another 4 minutes.

13. Serve the cake with powdered sugar.

This step is optional. Before serving, allow the cake to cool completely.

As a recap, here’s the complete list of ingredients:

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of plant-based or animal milk
  • 5 tablespoons of sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of vinegar

Remember, the entire recipe can be done in just 30 minutes.

However, if it’s your first time doing it, there’s nothing wrong with spending a longer time making it.

Also, if you don’t have bananas, you can use other fruits like apples.

There’s no limit to the ingredients. You can try to be as creative as you like.
