Hi All,

Not sure anyone is interested but here is my recipe for nutritious  cheap as chips banana cake with no fat.

3 large ''ripe'' banana's ( I get in the bargain bin on Mondays in greengrocers for about 9pence)

2 eggs,

8oz plain flour,

6oz sugar (I use granulated and never bother buying ''caste''r as no different in cakes whatsoever)

1teaspoon of salt.

1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda,

And if wanted nuts ( I use walnuts) cheaper in weigh out loose shops or Lidls.

Place bananas,eggs and sugar in bowl and whizz till soft and ''frothy'' with plenty of air in mix.

Next sift in dry ingredients and whisk lightly.

Then pour into a tin or any pan. I like to lay some whole walnuts on the top to look attractive.

Bake for 1 hour on 170 fan oven or gas 4 ( can cover with foil if top is going too brown halfway through)

will keep 1 week in a tin,or longer in fridge. Sometimes I cut in half when cool and it freezes beautifully.

can be spread with butter if wanted ''YUMMY''

Hi Pam,

Somehow this one got lost.

I love it, especially if you can use up older bananas. We always seem to have a few that have been let for just too long to be eaten as fruit but that would be great as baked with rum for dessert, or maybe in your cake?

Never knowingly underfed

Well? How was it?

I have 3 "ripe" bananas that were going into the usual old bun mix tomorrow, but I could be swayed with a review of pam's recipe.

Oh Shereen, I have been neglecting my duties (reporting back), but truth is I hadn't tasted it - but just had a little taste now - it is very nice, with a definite banana flavour to it, also moist and helps the tea go down a treat !!

Trying not to eat too much cake this week - as we're going to a 'ball' tonight and I have to squeeze into my dress - wish me luck!

Thank-you 🙂

I now have a banana cake in the oven at this very minute. I also have my fingers crossed it works out ok. I read the recipe, but measured all the dry ingredients into the one bowl thanks to my add'n'weigh scales and my short memory. So some of the sugar was spooned out into the egg and banana mix, and the rest went in with the flour.

If it all goes to plan the banana cake comes out in time for the gammon and roast spuds to go in. So here's hoping!

I'll get a taste of it after dinner 🙂 The glass in the background is my pre-dinner ginger beer. I feel like I've earned it today.

Oh how great you have tried to make it ( and looks perfect too) Shereen.

Just slap a lovely blob of organic butter over the slices and its extra scrummy!

Thanks for taking time to share the photo.

Warm wishes from Pam

We tried it after dinner and it got a big thumbs up from G and I. I had half my slice naked, and half buttered. It was so good I'm forgoing tomorrow's breakfast scone and taking a couple of slices of Pam cake into work instead.

Thank-you for sharing the recipe.

Hmmm somehow haven't managed to carry out the 'no fat banana cake' recipie as yet, mainly due to the fact my banana supply has decreased somewhat (must have a mouse - one that looks like a man, oh and a small child). So, going to get bananas today & hope they go 'old' quickly.

Made some fab oaty biscuits though, perfect for 'dunking' Smile
