Easy banana cake. Really quick in a food processor and great for using up bananas nearly past their best.

Learned from my mum this is one of the first cakes I ever baked!

Step 1: Ingredients

For the Cake:

  • 250g (8oz) cooking margarine or softened butter
  • 350g (12oz) caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 500g (8oz) Self-Raising flour
  • 4 Ripe Bananas Mashed

To Finish
  • 200g of Chocolate
  • 1 punnet of strawberries
  • Lemon Curd

(this makes 2 cakes)

&nbsp;Great recipe, made it last night. Tried in the past to make banana bread but it always ended up solid and horrible. This one rocks.&nbsp;<br /> People might want to tone down the sugar content though as its really sweet. Depending on how ripe your nanas are, you can probably lose about 100g of the sugar.&nbsp;<br /> Otherwise, great recipe!
yes, have made it with half the sugar and that works well too!<br />
&nbsp;Lemon curd is some good stuff, never thought of using it for baking though!
&nbsp;Hannah makes a gorgeous cake where the lemon curd is mixed into the cake mixture. Very dense and moist!
I'll have to try that out sometime!&nbsp;
Plain chocolate on top?&nbsp;Maybe I'll try chocolate icing...^^<br />
yep, cadburys milk chocolate, not a fan of icing :)<br />
Looks delicious!&nbsp; I'll have to look around for some lemon curd.<br />
