It's not exactly a newsflash that bananas turning to mush make a delicious cake, but I do forget just how luscious the kitchen smells when the sweet warm scent of those battered boys wafts from the oven!
Battered But Beautiful Banana Cake
115g soft brown sugar
500g soft mashed bananas
250g plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 180 degrees/gas mark 4. Grease a baking tin.
Cream together the butter and sugar til light and fluffy.
Beat the eggs and mix in one at a time, then fold in the banana. Sieve in the flour, salt and bicarb of soda into the bowl and mix to combine thoroughly.
Pour into the tin and bake in the centre of the oven for approx and hour.
Eat while still a little warm.
