We had some bananas in the fruit bowl that were looking a bit ‘questionable’ and, considering this website is bookmarked as a favourite on my laptop, I knew I had the perfect recipe for them! This makes a large ‘traybake’ sized cake and does freeze quite well
190gr of self raising flour
1tsp baking powder
200gr of sugar (I use half brown sugar and half golden caster sugar)
55gr of melted butter
3 medium sized ripe bananas (mashed)
1, Preheat oven to 190o/c and line a 28cm by 20cm rectangular baking dish with baking parchment
2, Sift all the dry ingredients together in one bowl and mix the remaining wet ingredients in another bowl
3, Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until you have a smooth batter with lumpy banana bits in it. At this stage its great if you want to chuck in any leftover nuts/chocolate chips etc!
4, Pour into the line tray and bake for 30-35minutes or until golden on top and an inserted skewer comes out clean.
