I’m not the greatest fan of banana cake, but usually whip one up when we end up with over-ripe bananas just so I don’t feel wasteful discarding food. But more often than not it is a bit dry, dense, and with a cloying banana taste.
But since I found this banana cake recipe from my compatriot Simone I have been won over. (While you’re there check out the rest of her lovely blog, and oogle her gorgeous photography too!) It was passed on to her by her flatmate, and no doubt will be passed on a few times more as it really is the best banana cake recipe – moist and light and sweet and sticky – Mm-mmm…..
And there is no messing around creaming things either – just melt the butter and mix everything together in a bowl! Do try it – mine is baking in the oven as I type and the kitchen smells just divine. I only hope it lasts until the photography stage!
(Phew – I just managed to top it with chocolate and grab a quick shot before the hungry schoolboy got home!)
