Banana Cake/Bread Recipe

Banana cake is very popular around these parts. Maybe it’s because it sounds healthy when actually it’s not. But anyway, here’s the recipe the little one uses.


  • 4oz of butter or margarine
  • 6oz sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 big bananas
  • 8oz wholemeal self-raising flour


  • Mash the bananas with a sturdy fork
  • Cream the butter and sugar together, and mix in the eggs
  • Mix together the two yellow sludges you now have, and mix in the flour
  • Scrape into a cake tin and bake for about 40 minutes at Gas Mark 4/180°C/350°F
  • Turn the oven down to Gas Mark 2/150°C/300°F and leave in for another 30 minutes
