So with that in mind I bought 4 green bananas to try last week and do you know what?.........................They are now a cake!!
No matter how hard I tried I just couldn't bring myself to taste one and so after a week of sitting there doing nothing they had turned yellow. The only thing left to do with them was to turn them into a banana loaf.
John has sampled it and says it's edible and coming from him that is praise indeed :0)
Here's a very simple recipe from studentrecipes.com
7oz plain flour
1 level teaspoon baking powder
1/2 level teaspoon bicarbonate soda
4oz caster sugar
a little milk
2 bananas (mashed)
Sieve the flour, bicarbonate soda and baking powder. Rub in the margarine and caster sugar. Add mashed bananas, beat in egg and milk and mix well. Grease a loaf tin and bake for 1 hour at 190c in the centre of the oven.
