Deliciously Moist Banana Cake

IMAG1002 (1)I just love this cake. It’s so quick and easy to prepare and with only one bowl to wash up afterwards! 


3 large very ripe bananas (I use the ones that are going black, my children won’t eat them and I hate to see waste 😉)

125g butter

150g sugar

250g plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 heaped tsp mixed spice

2 free range eggs

2 tbsp golden syrup

Preheat your oven to 160 C

It is so simple, blend everything together at once in a food processor for about 20 seconds. You may need to scrape down the side and give it another quick whizz 😉

Pop the mixture into a pre-lined  loaf tin and bake for one hour in the oven

I usually reduce the heat to 150 once I have popped it into the oven

Oh and check it half way through; if it has gotten a little too brown on top just slip some baking paper over the top

Allow to sit on a wire wrack to cool 🙂

All that is left to do now is have a cuppa and sample a slice, enjoy 😉
