I had 2 very ripe bananas to use up so decided to make a cake. It's very easy and delicious [I sound like Ina!].
2 ripe bananas [about 400g]
150g butter at room temperature
150g soft brown sugar
300g plain flour
2 tspn baking powder
1/2tspn bicarbonate of soda
1 tspn cinnamon
2 medium beaten eggs
100ml vegetable oil
Preheat oven 180C/gas4/350F
Grease a 2lb/900g loaf tin
Peel and mash the bananas.
Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat together till fluffy. Stir in the bananas and the sultanas.
Sieve together the flour, baking powder and soda.
Add the flour mixture and the eggs to the banan mixture, adding about a third at a time of each.
Mix together well. Then stir in the oil.
Put into the loaf tin and bake for about 40 mins. Leave in the tin to cool and then put onto a wire rack.
I didn't have the 400g of bananas so used more sultanas. I also didn't use any oil this time and it's still a moist cake.
