one 900g loaf cake or 12-18 small cakes dependent on size.

A wonderfully light and soft banana cake with the addition of butterscotch chips which melt in the oven. Lovely as a cake but equally delicious as a pudding with custard!

  • 2 ripe bananas about 400g
  • 150g softened butter or Stork
  • 150g soft light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 60g butterscotch chips - I got mine from Waitrose
  • 300g self raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 medium eggs, lightly beaten
  • 100ml vegetable oil


  1. Preheat oven to 180c, 160c fan oven or Gas Mark 4. Line a 900g loaf tin or prepare baking cases.

  2. Peel and mash the bananas.

  3. Put the butter and sugar into a bowl and cream together until light and fluffy.

  4. Stir in the mashed bananas and butterscotch chips.

  5. Sift together the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda. Beat the eggs together.

  6. Add the flour mix and the beaten egg about a 1/3 of each at a time mixing well between each addition.

  7. Finally stir in the vegetable oil and then pour into the tin or cases and bake for 40-45 mins until well risen and golden brown and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

  8. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 mins and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
