Ingredients

  • 3 large black bananas
  • 75g vegetable oil or sunflower oil (weight), plus extra for greasing
  • 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

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mash the peeled bananas with a fork, then mix well with the oil and sugar. Add the flour, baking powder and cinnamon, and combine well. Add the dried fruit or nuts, if using.

  2. Bake in a greased, lined 2lb loaf tin for 20 minutes. Check and cover with foil if the cake is browning. Bake for another 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.

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