Bananas for bananas.

How's this for the ultimate compliment:

I bumped into a Mum I know who looooves banana cake almost as much as I do. She's baked banana cakes untold times over the years and just recently tried this one. Which happens to be my recipe.

And her son (a brilliant 13 year old kid) told her it was the best one he'd ever had!


125g butter
¾ cup sugar
2 eggs
3 or 4 smashed bananas
1 t-spoon baking soda
2 tablespoons hot milk
2 cups Champion standard flour
1 t-spoon baking powder


Get the oven up to 180C. Grease a 20cm cake tin.
Zap the butter for 30 seconds in the microwave (or until it's soft but not melted) then cream in the sugar.
Add the eggs one at a time and keep on beating till it's smooth. Add the smashed bananas and stir through.
Separately stir the baking soda into the hot milk. It should froth up! pour the milk into your mixture. Sift in the dry ingredients.
Don't over mix - just fold it all through and then pour it out into the cake tin.

Bake for around 45 - 50 minutes depending on your oven.

Sheesh I love banana cake. Try it.
