Banana cakey goodness

This is my super yummy-husband-pleaser banana cake. It's actually just the good old Edmond's cookbook recipe with a few twists but shhh! don't tell! It's always a crowd pleaser and if you jazz it up with chocolate butter icing, you get a standing ovation....

Sammy's Original (yeah right!) Banana Cake

125g Butter

3/4 cup sugar

2 eggs*

1 cup of mashed bananas**

1 tsp baking soda

2 Tbsp hot milk

2 cups plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition. Add mashed banana and mix thoroughly. Stir baking soda into hot milk*** and add to mixture. Sift flour and baking powder together. Stir into mixture.

Turn into greased and lined 20cm cake tin. Bake at 180d C for 50min or until a skewer come out clean. YUM!

*Use eggs at room temperature, it makes a difference, can't explain how, it just does!

**Freeze your old bananas skin off. Use 3 defrosted bananas in recipe. It makes the banana taste almost caramel-ly.

***This will froth up- it's meant to

Great! I might try to convert the amounts of ingredients in future from grams to ounces to make it easier. Enjoy!
