Banana Cream Mini Sponge Cake

Banana Cream Mini Sponge Cake
These delicious ramekin sponge cakes make a great occasional treat for your toddler. They are sweetened by honey, have only four ingredients, and taste amazing with or without the banana cream added in the middle!


  • CAKE
  • 100g butter
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 2/3 cup self raising flour

  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup thickened cream
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • a few drops vanilla essence


Preheat oven to 170 C (340 F) and grease 3 large ramekins with butter.

Melt butter and honey together in a pot on the stove. Set aside to cool down a little.

Sift flour into a mixing bowl, then add butter/honey mixture. Mix until combined, then add eggs. Mix until cake batter is smooth.

Divide cake batter evenly among the 3 prepared ramekins.

Bake in oven for approx 23 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Set cakes aside to cool down a little while you make the filling:


Mash banana with a fork, then put banana, cream, honey and vanilla into a blender. Blend until smooth.

Heat mixture in a pot on the stove, stirring, until it's just about to start simmering.

Turn cakes out of ramekins, gently cut in half horizontally and divide the filling evenly onto the bases of all 3 cakes. Replace the tops and serve!

NOTE: If making the banana cream, serve immediately as the bananas in it will start to brown if left too long. The cakes on their own will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days, just cool them completely and wrap with plastic wrap.


  • Bananas are a fantastic ingredient in toddler cooking, as they are a healthy way of sweetening any recipe without adding refined sugar. Mashed banana can also be used in place of butter or oil to keep cakes and muffins moist.
  • Raw honey contains natural vitamins, antioxidants, enzymes, and many other important natural nutrients. These nutrients are destroyed when honey is heated and pasteurised. It is worth noting that eating pasteurised honey is almost the same as eating refined sugar, without any of the health benefits of raw honey.
