Picture of Banana Cake
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!

 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. 
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. 
Otherwise, great recipe!

yes, have made it with half the sugar and that works well too!

 Lemon curd is some good stuff, never thought of using it for baking though!
 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!
