Since Meggie and Kira so nicely hinted at sharing some recipes from the mainly munchies recipe book, 🙂 I thought I’d share a family favourite of ours that’s included in the book. This banana cake is lovely fresh, warm and fully cooked, or cold, moist and just ever-so-slightly uncooked – or any combination of the above!
4oz butter or substitute
¾ cup sugar
1 ½ cups self-raising flour
3 medium-sized bananas
¼ cup milk
½ teaspoon bi-carb soda
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Peel and mash bananas (enough for 1 cup full)
Add mashed banana to creamed mixture, beat until just combined. Fold in sifted flour and salt alternatively with combined milk and bi-carb soda.
Pour into greased 7” sandwich tins, or a square lamination tin. Bake in a moderate oven or until cooked when tested.
When cold, join with whipped cream. Ice if desired – I’ve used lemon icing, with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top
Bon apatite everyone!
