    1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Butter two 20cm sandwich tins and line with non-stick baking paper. In a large bowl, beat all the cake ingredients together including the vanilla extract and 2 mashed, ripe bananas, until you have a smooth, soft batter.

    2. Divide the mixture between the tins, smooth the surface with a spatula or the back of a spoon, then bake for about 20 mins until golden and the cake springs back when pressed. Turn onto a cooling rack and leave to cool completely.

    3. For the filling, whip the double cream and fold through the Banoffee toffee. To serve, spread half of the cream over one of the cakes, then top with another sliced banana.

    4. Sandwich together, then cover with more cream then decorate the cake with an elegant drizzle of Banoffee toffee. Keep in an airtight container and eat within 2 days.

    Lovely cake, made for a friend's birthday and she loved it! I sliced bananas and put them in the middle with toffee sauce, then 'iced' with whipped cream and drizzled with chocolate sauce! Indulgent but it WAS a birthday!!

    I made this cake for my husbands birthday. I mixed the toffee sauce through a mixture of whipped double cream and mascarpone. I have had so many comments that I will be making this again.

    I made this cake at the weekend (it's the first cake I've ever made from 'scratch'!!) I was so pleased with the cake it was absolutely delicious, I'd made it for a family get together and everyone loved it. Yes admittedly it did take longer to cook than stated but its easy enough to gauge when a sponge is cooked!!

    Super easy to make and looked fabulous. I gave this to my brother for his birthday and he described it as 'heavenly' but I haven't tasted it myself as yet. Definitely will be making this again and will possibly try as individual cakes too.

    Lovely moist sponge recipe, thankies! I also used carnation caramel for the filling as I love it. Will make again.

    Has anyone tried making this recipe as butterfly cakes, or does anyone have ant idea how I should adjust cooking time and temp?

    I used dulce du leche as I'm pretty sure Merchant Gourmet don't make the banoffee toffee anymore. The cakes didn't rise as much as a normal victoria spnge but it was lovely and moist. However, I would say that its not a 'pretty' cake- the cream filling tends to ooze out of the middle!
