    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.

    I was a bit nervous about making this cake as I've always had mixed results from banana cakes, however, this one turned out wonderfully! It needed slightly longer in the oven than the recipe stated (but I have a very temperamental oven...) and I used mascapone loosened with some double cream for the filling and topping as my boyfriend doesn't particularly like cream. My only suggestion would be to have more bananas available for the filling so that you can use quite chunky slices and add a layer of toffee sauce to the middle to really give it a 'banoffee' feel.

    An utterly totally luscious cake. I added choc chips to sponge as, the first time I made it, I used the two cakes as individual cutting cakes - they were moist and yummy just like that. Finally got around to making whole recipe this week and it's a dream. Couldn't find Dulche de Leche so used Waitrose toffee sauce which worked just fine.

    I made this cake for my boyfriend's birthday and although I'm not very experienced at baking this one turned out wonderfully, it's very easy to make and the sponge is light and moist!! Instead of toffee I used banana split ecclairs. Will definitely make it again and will also try out some of the variations.

    Apparently it was very nice even if the cream filling did melt in the afternoon soon so it all looked like a big mess - recommendation do not make on hot days! Also used Dulce de Leche as couldn't find the banoffee anywhere.

    Miriam: yes, using fake butter margarine will probably cause problems. These products have a lower melting temperature than real butter (so will give a greasier, soggier feeling cake), often contain quite a high percentage of water compared to butter (especially if it's a reduced fat version) and are only dyed yellow, being naturally a kind of grey or neutral colour. The grey colour could also come from the bananas, if you left them out too long after mashing them and they started to discolour.

    A complete and utter disaster. The cake took so much longer to cook then stated but the result was a really dense cake which wasn't particularly appetizing. I have made many cakes from this website and this was the first disaster, needless to say I won't be making it again!
