I'd be the first to admit that I don't love bananas. But I do like them in a cake.
Oddly, even though we're in the depths of winter, our bananas are getting ready. Lloyd picked this bunch a week or so ago and had them ripening in a bag on the table on the deck.
They're beautifully ready now so I decided to make a cake with some of them ( Also our hens are laying like crazy right now so I could use up a few eggs as well.)
I've never made a banana cake before so here's where the good old internet came in handy. I looked for a very easy recipe and this popped up.
I got it from Here, and they have some really nice looking recipes. I followed it absolutely exactly and it really did take 1 hour 45minutes to cook. Probably when the writer of the recipe made their one they didn't splatter banana cake mix gunk all over their laptop.
When it was finished it looked like this!
and after I ate a bit it looked like this!
It was really lovely, more like banana bread, though and not quite as moist as I expected, but delicious all the same and not too bad for a first attempt.
