Banana and Nut cake!

There were two overripe bananas in the fruit bowl this morning just begging to made into cake!

I found this recipe in one of my recipe books- this one here  and away I went.

The Recipe is called Banana Nut Bread , but it is cake!!

6oz sugar

4ox butter

Cream together

Add 2 eggs and beat

Mash two bananas and add to the mix with 12oz Self raising flour, 1 teaspoon of bicarb of soda and 3 tablespoons of milk. Mix.

Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence and 6 oz chopped walnuts ( I only had 4oz so I added some chopped almonds instead). Mix.

Oven at 350F or 180C or Gas mark 4.

Line and grease a 2lb loaf tin. Spoon in mixture and bake.The recipe says 40-45 mins but mine took 1 1/4 hours!

The recipe says cool then slice and spread with butter.

I preferred mine without butter.
