Make a banana cake, the spottier the better I find. The cake gets so sticky and sweet it is absolutely delicious. The recipe is from my good old faithful ‘Edmond’s Cookery Book’ and is as follows:
125g (4ozs.) Butter
175g (60zs.) Sugar
2 Mashed Bananas
1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda
2 Tablespoons of Boiling Milk
1 teaspoon of Baking Powder
Cream butter and sugar.
Add eggs and mashed bananas.
Then add bicarbonate of soda dissolved in the boiling milk.
Finally add the mixture of baking powder and flour.
Bake in loaf tin or 24cm square cake tin for 30min at 180degrees cent. or until skewer comes out clean and cake a light brown colour.
(Edmonds bakes the cake in two small sandwich tins for twenty minutes and suggests to put the 2 cakes together with whipped cream and sliced bananas in the center – Very Naughty But Very Nice)
