Banana & Walnut Cake

This is a great little recipe for using up those left over; no one wants to eat; going brown and manky Bananas! There is no major cost involved as it uses ingredients found in most kitchen cupboards. Its moist, very moreish and great little treat for lunch boxes or with afternoon tea.

Pre-heat the oven to 180˚c / Gas mark 5 / 350˚f.

Start by mixing together the Flour, Bicarb and Salt.

Cream together the Butter and Sugar until it is light and fluffy.

Beat the Eggs together in a cup and add a little to the Butter/Sugar mixture.

Beat in well. Add a little of the Flour mixture and stir in well.

Repeat this process alternating with the Egg and Flour until they are all mixed in well.

In another bowl, mash together to Banana’s.

Add the Chopped Walnuts to the Banana’s and stir in.

Now add the Banana and Walnut mixture to the Cake mixture and stir really well.

Pour the mixture into a greased baking loaf tin (1kg/2lb capacity).

Use a fine skewer to check if the cake is cooked. When you remove the skewer, it should be clean. If there is still a little cake stuck to it then leave in the oven for another 5-10 minutes and repeat this process.
