Walnut and Banana Cake

This was adapted from the Gizzi Erskine’s Sticky Banoffee Pudding recipe in her book (which I love love LOVE!). I decided to put some walnuts in there and ignored the dates (mainly because I didn’t have them!)

1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
85g softened unsalted butter
175g golden caster sugar
2 large free-range eggs, beaten
175g self-raising flour, sieved
3 bananas, roughly mashed
1 teaspoon ground mixed spice

Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas 4 and line a 22cm baking dish with greaseproof paper
Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add the eggs, one at a time. Fold in the flour, banana, mixed spice, bicarb and pour into the baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes, until the top is springy and a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre.

I have made this for my fella as a Valentine’s Day pudding, and so will be serving this warm with posh vanilla ice cream! xx
