Banana Cake

Banana Cake

7 oz butter, softened
7 oz dark brown soft sugar
4 large eggs, beaten
3 ripe bananas, broken into chunks
3 oz walnuts, chopped
7 oz self-raising flour (I'm using gluten free flour)
1/4 tsp salt

Pre-heat oven 180C. Grease and line an 8 inch cake tin with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.

Gradually, beat in eggs and whisk in the bananas until smooth.

Using a large metal spoon, fold in the walnuts, salt and flour.

Spoon into the tin and bake for 50-55 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
