I make this as a quick bread ( it's a cake really ) in the morning to serve with breakfast if I have some very ripe bananas to use up.
It's a great sugar fix & perfect with a good cup of coffee.
I've updated this recipe ( October 2012 ) to make it an even quicker & easier all in one cake. Perfect if you're busy in the morning - just leave enough time for it to cool slightly before cutting.
Best served warm out of the oven.
3oz brown sugar
2oz softened butter
1tbs set honey
1 very ripe peeled banana
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 oz self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp milk
You need a 1lb loaf tin lined - I buy ready made paper liners to make it really easy.
Preheat the oven to about 180 degrees ( for a fan oven )
Put all the ingredients in a mixer and beat for 2 minutes.
Put into your prepared tin and bake for 30-40 minutes till a skewer / knife come out clean when inserted into the cake.
Leave it in the tin for about 5 minutes, then put onto a cooling rack. You need to leave it to stand for about 20 minutes, then slice & eat.
