Mam's Banana Cake
From Sandra

There are 3 females in our family & we're all a bit heavy handed when it comes to sponge cakes. So when Mam discovered this Banana Cake recipe (no idea where or when) it quickly became a family favorite, & now gets made for every & any occasion. Even though we moved round a lot when I was little (following Dad & his work), Mam's Banana Cake was a constant & have now been asked for by my little sister, who has just moved into a house with a usable kitchen.


Mamís Banana Cake
8oz Self Rising Flour
4oz Margarine/Butter
2oz Sugar
1 egg (lightly beaten)
1 Large Banana (peeled & mashed)
A pinch of baking powder
A little milk (if needed)

Greased & lined cake/loaf tin
Preheat oven at 350 degrees (180 degrees 'C', Gas Mark 4)

Place everything except the milk in a bowl & using an electric mixer, mix everything together well. The batter might be a little stiff, so it is at this point you add the milk. I can't give exact amounts, but it should be enough to give you a wet/soft cake batter.

Pour in to the prepared tin & bake until a skewer comes out clean, when inserted in to the centre. Bake 45 - 60 minutes.


Sandra also says, ďI know this isn't exactly a hint, but last time I made this cake I made it in a round tin, cut in half through the centre. Put lashings of vanilla butter icing between the pieces, then covered in chocolate icing made from a bar of milk chocolate & two big dollops of Nutella. It disappeared so fast, I never got a slice. lolĒ
