Perfect for using up over ripe bruised bananas; this is a recipe I found on the Good to Know site. The finished cake was so light and moist and delicious served with some butter, this is a fab recipe I’d definitely use again.
Also, I must apologise for the rubbish photos. I was experimenting with a different camera rather than my iPad and I couldn’t get the light right.
What you need:
75g butter or margarine
100g soft brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
2 large bananas
225g self-raising flour
1/2 tsp mixed spice
Pinch of salt
Handful of mixed fruit or chopped walnuts (optional)
What you do:
Preheat your oven to 190°c and prepare a loaf tin (grease and line)
Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy using an electric whisk or freestanding mixer. Gradually add the beaten egg.
Add the dried fruit. Mash the bananas then add to the mixture.
Fold in the flour, spice and salt. I then gave it a little extra beat in the mixer to ensure all the flour was combined. And, don’t forget the salt like I did!
Spoon into the prepared tin, level off and bake for 35-40 minutes. Mine actually needed 45.
Cool on a wire rack. Serve with butter and a nice cuppa 🙂
