I love using bananas in my baking and so this week, I opted to make the most of my overripe fruit bowl! I hope you like the recipe.

Banana Cake

  2. Grease a 20cm loaf tin.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

    Add the eggs and mix well.

Suzy says

  • No need to ice the cake, it is lovely just as it is!
  • If you have any more overripe bananas, chop them up and put them in the freezer to make my Suzy sorbet 🙂
