    I have used this recipe for years now - such a lovely cake. You can use 7oz self raising flour instead of the plain flour and baking soda/bicarb to make it easier. Also the bananas mash up fine in the dry ingredients if you want to save on washing up. It's absolutely gorgeous with 100g chopped up chocolate mixed in at the end.

    Fab recipie, it never goes wrong and i am a lazy cook literally just chuck all ingredients at the same time - turn on the food micer and job done. Sometimes chuck a handful of raisins in and mixed spices - whatever we fancy at the time.....
    i think my 3 year old has cottoned onto the fact that if he doesnt eat bananas, once they have gone a bit too ripe he knows i make him a banana cake !!

    Love this recipe, have made it about 8 times now and it always comes out really moist and bouncy. I still work in ounces too. :) it's not hard to convert if you're that desperate to use grammes.
