Mama's Moist Banana Cake

I LOVE banana cake and have been making the same recipe since I was a child. I have no idea where the recipe originates from, but it was neatly penned in my mother's hand written recipe book and now resides similarly in mine. It's quick and easy to make and the outcome is a deliciously moist centre with crispy edge.


85 grams butter
1 cup brown sugar (small)
1 egg
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 ½ cups plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
¼ cup milk


Cream butter and sugar. Add egg, then banana. Sift dry ingredients and add alternately with the milk. Make sure all ingredients are mixed together well. Place batter in a lined loaf tin and bake in a moderate oven for 45 - 55 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I love my slice of banana cake with a scraping of butter, naughty I know. If you wanted to be really naughty, throw in a handful of chopped dark chocolate right at the end. Enjoy!
