Ingredients

  • 30 g oil
  • 20 g milk
  • 20 g very ripe banana
  • 2 eggs egg yolk and egg white separated
  • 10 g black sesame powder
  • 40 g cake flour
  • 45 g sugar
  • black sesame seeds for topping

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300F.
  • Mix milk and oil together and heat it until it is lukewarm.
  • Mash banana into the milk and oil mixture until smooth. You can also blend it.
  • Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks and add the egg yolks to the milk mixture. Then, sift and mix in the cake flour and black sesame powder.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy. Then add the sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold a third of the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture. Once combined, continue with another third and then the remainder.
  • Transfer the batter into baking cups about 3/4 full, decorate with black sesame seeds, and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the baking tray from the oven and drop the pan to help loosen the edges and preventing the cake from deflating in the center.
  • Let cool completely. Store in an air-tight container for up to 3 days at room temperature or for longer in the fridge.
