Banana Cake

Banana Cake

It's no secret that i love to bake, but since The Great British Bake Off has been on i couldn't wait to get out my mixing bowl and have a go myself.

I typically tend to stick to baking traditional sponge, but i decided to get a bit creative and have a go at banana cake. I must say it is a very moist thick cake, not what i'm used to but still very delicious.

You will need:

140g butter
140g caster sugar
2 eggs
140g Self-raising flour
2 mashed bananas
Icing sugar

What to do:

1. Cream the butter and sugar together, beat the eggs separately and then slowly pour into the mixture. Add a little flour with the eggs and then fold in the remainder.

2. Add in the mashed banana and mix until creamy.

3. Pop the cake into the oven at 180 degrees for around 30-40 minutes

4. Once cooked remove from the oven and allow to cool. When the cake is cooler mix 50g icing sugar with water to make a paste and then pour over the cake

5. If you fancy you can add some dried banana chips on top for decoration

6. Grab a cuppa and enjoy!
