Gone Bananas

I noticed this morning that some of the bananas that I bought last week were still there and not looking their best, so I decided to use them for a very easy loaf / cake.


3oz (85g) butter or margarine
4oz (100g) light brown sugar or regular caster sugar is fine
1 egg
2 large ripe bananas mashed
8oz (225g) self-raising flour
1/2 tsp mixed spice
pinch of salt

First of all, cream the butter and sugar, then add the egg and whisk until incorporated into the mixture. Then add the bananas and whisk again. The mixture will look as though it has curdled, but this is ok.

Then add the flour, salt and spice and fold in until all mixed together.

Line a loaf tin and then pour in the mixture and spread with a spoon.

Put into the oven gas 5 /190C / 375F for about 40 mins.

Enjoy with a cup of tea! Or coffee !
