Soft banana cake with a twist. Quick and easy recipe, perfect with custard. Made with no margarine or butter, not even for greasing the pan! No grease doesn't mean your cake will be dry, the banana and mangoes will compensate.

  • 200g Caster Sugar
  • 4 Medium Eggs
  • 2 Very Ripe Bananas (mashed)
  • Flesh of 2 Large Mangoes (finely chopped or pureed)
