My favourite recipe to use up those super ripe bananas in my fruit bowl.
– 125g unsalted butter at room temperature
– 2 eggs
– 125g soft light brown sugar
– 225g flour
– Pinch of salt
– 2 tsp baking powder
– 3-4 ripe bananas – mashed with a fork
– Handful of chopped walnuts
Heat oven to 180C and line a loaf tin with baking paper.
Beat the butter with electric beaters / stand mixer until white & fluffy (around 3 minutes).
Add the sugar and mix well.
Mix each egg in seperately and make sure they are mixed in properly.
Add flour, salt and baking powder and mix in well.
Fold the mashed bananas in followed by the chopped walnuts.
Spoon the mixture into the tin and level out.
Bake for around 45 minutes.
Insert a skewer into the middle – the cake is ready when the skewer comes out clean.
Cool cake in the tin for 10 min, remove from the tin and cool completely on a wire rack.
