Banana Cake – a Recipe from the Queen of Banana Cakes, Mary Rafferty, Maryland, USA.

I never was a great fan of banana cake until I tasted Mary’s. But she is a brilliant cook!

If you can get your head around American quantities, this is so good.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup softened butter, 2 eggs, 1/3cup soured cream (greek yoghurt works just as well), 2 cups plain flour, 1 cup of caster sugar,1/4 tsp cinnamon, 2 ripe large bananas, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda.

Oven Temperature: 325 Fahrenheit  or No 3 Gas

Method, cream butter and sugar, add beaten eggs, mashed bananas and soured cream. Sift in all dry ingredient.  Put into a paper lined large loaf tin and cook for 1 hour and a quarter to an hour and a half or until a toothpick comes out clean.
