Banana Cake

  • Large ripe FAIR TRADE bananas x 3 (When mashed, there should be 12 fl oz.)
  • 375g Plain flour
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 2 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 125ml Vegetable Oil
  • 200g Granulated sugar (unrefined)
  • 100g Soft brown sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Flavouring
  • Tbsp Lemon Juice

Heat the oven to 180°C (350°F, Gas 4).

Take 2 loaf tins, or a couple of bun tins and wipe with butter, then sprinkle with flour. (Or line with foil)

Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs until just mixed. Add the oil, sugars, vanilla, lemon juice, and mashed bananas.

Pour three-quarters of the banana mixture into the well in the flour, and stir with a rubber spatula.

Gradually draw in the dry ingredients, adding the remaining banana mixture, and stirring to make a smooth batter.
TAKE CARE: Do not overstir the batter or the bread will be heavy.

Spoon the batter into the prepared tins. The tins should be about half full.

Bake the loaves in the heated oven until the loaves start to shrink from the sides of the tins and a metal skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean, 40-60 minutes.

Let the loaves cool, then you can eat!
