I was looking for a recipe for a banana cake and a friend showed me an ancient recipe, cut from a newspaper, which they swear by. Being the twenty-first century, I photographed it so I could try it myself. It is simple and was a success. I therefore share it here (in a slightly tweaked version to make it as easy as possible) for others, and to make it easier for me to read in future.
- 70g (3oz) butter
- 4 bananas chopped into chunks
- 200g (8oz) (dark) brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- pinch of salt
- 140g (6oz) plain flour
- Heat the oven to 160c/325f/GM3 and grease a loaf tin.
- Put each ingredient in order listed above into a food processor, and whizz after each one is added. (Or mix them together in order in a bowl, making sure the bananas are well mashed up.)
- After the flour has been added and whizzed, pour the mixture into the cake tin and bake for an hour, or until a knife inserted into the cake comes out clean.
