Going bananas!

I thought I would post a simple recipe for banana cake: the perfect way to use up overripe bananas that you wouldn’t otherwise eat. This quick and easy recipe makes a deliciously moist cake with next to no effort.

You will need the following ingredients:

2 very ripe bananas
4 oz butter or margarine
6 oz sugar (most sugars will do, I use unrefined caster sugar)
8 oz self-raising flour
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp honey

Pre-heat the oven to 180˚c (gas mark 4)
Grease a 2lb loaf tin.
Mash the banana in a bowl and keep to one side.
Cream together the butter and sugar.
Break the eggs and beat into the mix.
Add the vanilla essence, cinnamon, honey and mashed banana.
Fold in the flour gently.
Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and bake in the oven for 40 minutes.

Enjoy with a cup of cinnamon tea or a mug of hot chocolate. Perfect for a Saturday afternoon!
