I love baking this kind of thing for my children, although it's laden with butter & sugar (two of my favourite ingredients) it always makes me feel like I'm serving them something wholesome. This recipe is a godsend, it simply does not fail - you can make it again and again and be assured that it will be perfection every time. I have been baking this for years, I hope you love it as much as I do.......
125grams butter, softened.
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2tsp bicarb soda
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas
1/4 cup maple syrup (golden syrup works as well)
You can also add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts or 1 cup chopped dates at the end if you wish.
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Cream together the butter and sugar until pale and creamy. Gradually add the eggs and beat well.
Fold through flour, baking powder, bicarb, nutmeg & cinnamon, stir well. Incorporate bananas & maple syrup until mixed through.
Pour the batter into a greased and lined baking tin and bake for approx 45minutes.
Serve with lashings of butter & the obligatory cup of tea.
