this weeks bake is banana cake, I don't think I had ever had banana cake until a couple of years ago when I was given this recipe by an Australian. Since then it has become a family favourite.

220g caster sugar
2 x eggs
1 x ripe banana
dash vanilla extract
pinch of salt
250g self raising flour

125ml milk

1. pre heat oven 180c
2. mix butter and sugar
3. add eggs
4. add mashed banana and vanilla extract
5. sieve salt,flour and bicarb, add alternately with the milk
6. turn into a greased tin, I use a 9" spring form loose bottom tin
7. i usually bake this for 45-50 mins
