go bananas...

This being my first post i want to share something sweet and something that never fails... When you are left with over riped bananas and very little time then this is something that you can try. It is a breeze to make this cake...

Though cakes are my favourite i never quite like the store bought ones, especially if they are loaded with cream and frosting ... o.k. maybe except the chocolaty sorts.

Ingredients :

200 g plain flour

4 medium eggs

180 g caster sugar

200 g butter

250 g mashed banana

1tsp baking powder

1 tbsp milk


1. Set the oven at 185 degrees.

2. Seive the flour with baking powder and set aside.

3. Cream the butter and sugar.

4. Add eggs one at a time and whisk until well incorporated.

5. Now fold in the egg mixture , alternating with banana and flour.

6. Add in the milk... you can even add a dash of brandy here for more moist cake.

7.Once ready pour in the prepared tin and cook for 45 mins.

Decorate with banana slices. The cake tastes better the next day...
