banana bread - cake really

This is an easy cake to make, and a simple way to use up those bananas you've forgotten to eat.

3 very ripe bananas
butter or marg
soft brown sugar
3 eggs
self raising flour
1tsp bicarbonate of soda

you might add
raisins or sultanas

butter a 7" tin or in preference a bundt tin (tin with a hole in the middle) and dust with flour

beat butter and sugar together
peel the bananas and beat into sugar/fat mixture
add the eggs and beat some more
stir together flour, bicarb and spice if used
add flour and beat mixture together

don't worry if there are some lumps of banana, as long as the banana is mostly mashed in. The mixture usually ends up in a loose speckled batter

if you are adding sultanas or chocolate thrown them in now

cook at gas mark 7 for 40 minutes
