Recipe for March – delicious Banana Cake!


You may have read in the press this week that bananas are the one food purchase that are most likely to end up being thrown away. It seems a sad waste of food that has travelled many miles and for that reason this month’s recipe to be shared is:

Banana Cake (this always works and is even better topped with chocolate icing!)
120g butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 and half cups sifted flour (self raising preferable)
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp baking soda mixed with 3 tblsp milk at room temperature

Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and beat. Add the flour and mashed banana and finally the soda in milk mixture. Pour into a greased and floured ring tin and bake at 175 degrees for about 1 hour. Let it cool before covering with chocolate icing.

Optional chocolate icing:
Icing sugar, cocoa
Melt a small amount of butter in a tiny amount of boiling water, stir in icing sugar and cocoa and mix until you have a smooth, spreadable mixture.

This is an absolutely brilliant way of using up bananas- works every time and if the banana skins end up in a compost bin, even better!
