 Hey readers, 

Looking for something to do during lockdown then you have come to the right place.

 I have a simple banana cake you can make at home and use up unwanted bananas.

  • * 250g self-raising flour.

  • * 1 tsp ground cinnamon.

  • * 100g caster sugar.

  • * 4 bananas.

  • * 1 egg.

  • * 75g butter.

  • * 1 vanilla pod.

  • * 2 tsp demerara sugar.

* pinch of salt.

  • Method. 

  • 1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Grease and baseline a loaf tin.

2. Peel the bananas and mash up with a fork in a bowl.

3. Sieve the flour, add the pinch of salt, cinnamon and caster sugar in a separate bowl. 

4. Make a hole in the centre of the bowl with the flour in and add the banana, egg, butter, vanilla pod (make sure that is chopped up first). Then you need to mix these ingredients so that the texture is of a cake mixture. 

5. Spoon the mixture into the bread tin and then sprinkle some demerara sugar on top. 

6. Bake for an hour to an hour and 10 minutes in the oven. 

7. When taking out the tin leave in on the side to cool down for 10 - 15 minutes before transferring the cake on to a wire rack.
