    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.

    Great recipe really popular with collegues and family. I use the boiled condenced milk recipe for the filling, However If you are short of time you can buy nestle caramel in a tin (usually near the condenced milk in the supermarket). I have also made this recipe as a tray bake and instead of using icing / topping, I pushed worthers CHEWY toffees into the uncooked mix, to mark the center of each portion. for this technique you must use chewy toffees, otherwise they turn hard when they have cooled from the oven.

    This cake was quite tasty though seemed to need quite a lot longer to cook than I expected (30 or 40 minutes in my usually quite hot fan oven). It was a little bit grey and soggy too. Have other people used pure block butter rather than tub 'buttery' margarine? Maybe this was my mistake!

    Lovely, moist cake. I made it without the filling and sauce, just a plain banana sponge for a little something with a cuppa. Lovely! Keeps for a couple of days and stays moist and yummy. Just off to make it again!

    absolutely amazing cake, which is really easy to make! :) For the filling, i just boiled a tin of condensed milk (still in the tin) for an hour an a half. (just make sure the tin is completely covered in water because if not apparently theres a risk of explosion... now that would be a sticky mess!). After an hour and a half the toffee/fudge should be of about thick custard consitency, perfect for spreading between the two cakes :) mmmmm.... soooo good!

    Delicious and more-ish. Like Fruitpig I used a loaf tin - 40-45 mins and didn't make any toffee cream - the cake stands up on its own. By the way this is a really good one to make with impatient pre-schoolers. You bung the ingredients in in any order and let them stir away. A very enjoyable half hour with my little boy and he loves the finished cake too.

    So easy but so delicious; I like fruitpig make toffee sauce by boiling a tin of condensed milk for several hours. Word of caution though; I have a friend who did this and let saucepan boil dry, the tin exploded leaving toffee dripping from the ceiling and all the units of her newly fitted kitchen, fortunately the kitchen was the only casualty.
