Got one of these?
|Somewhat over-ripe banana|
Prefer one of these instead?
My mum gave me this recipe book a few years ago, it's very old and well used as you can see...!
Here's the recipe ...
|Mum's seal of approval at the top of page!|
I tweak the recipe slightly, I use 4oz of marg and 6oz of flour and also swap the lemon juice for a few tablespoons of milk to make the mixture a bit easier to mix.
You can do the traditional thing ie cream the marg and sugar, add the wet ingredients, mashed banana and fold in the flour or just chuck it all in a bowl together and mix it all up. Place the mixture in your chosen greased 'baking vessel', I use an earthenwear loaf dish that's about 24cm by 14cm. Bake on 160deg (fan) or 180deg (conv) for 40ish minutes (more than the recipe states but I make a slightly bigger cake because I'm greedy and I like the top a bit crusty!). The book does state that the cake should be eaten within 3 days (not a problem in our house!) and isn't suitable for freezing.
The finished article...
|Just enough for me there...|
|Good strong mug of tea!|
My kids love this cake while it's still warm! What do you do with your skanky bananas?
