Ingredients

  • 3 large black bananas
  • 75ml vegetable oil or sunflower oil, plus extra for the tin
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 225g plain flour (or use self-raising flour and reduce the baking powder to 2 heaped tsp)
  • 3 heaped tsp baking powder
  • 3 tsp cinnamon or mixed spice
  • 50g dried fruit or nuts (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mash 3 large black peeled bananas with a fork, then mix well with 75g vegetable or sunflower oil and 100g brown sugar.

  • STEP 2

    Add 225g plain flour, 3 heaped tsp baking powder and 3 tsp cinnamon or mixed spice, and combine well. Add 50g dried fruit or nuts, if using.

  • STEP 3

    Bake in an oiled, lined 2lb loaf tin for 20 minutes. Check and cover with foil if the cake is browning.

  • STEP 4

    Bake for another 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.

  • STEP 5

    Allow to cool a little before slicing. It's delicious freshly baked, but develops a lovely gooey quality the day after.
