Banana Cake

Leftover bananas from recent prayer offerings. Banana cake, here we go. I was missing an egg and it was already 10pm, so replaced an egg in the original recipe with 2 more bananas and an extra half teaspoon of baking powder. Colleagues were singing praises of this so I guess it went really well?

Recipe adapted from bbcgoodfood.

Ingredients:

140g butter ,softened
100g caster sugar
1 large egg,beaten
140g self-raising flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
3 very ripe medium sized banana, mashed
50g chocolate chips
Handful of raw almond slices or pumpkin seeds.

Directions:

1. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

2. Slowly add the eggs with a little flour.

3. Fold in the remaining flour, baking powder, chocolate chips and bananas. 

4. Pour into an oiled tin. Top it with nuts/banana or chocolate chips (optional)

5. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 160-180C for about 30 mins until a skewer comes out clean.

Bon appetit.
