Got some older bananas that need using up but want a change from the usual? This really really yummy recipe is one I modified from a plain banana cake and it is now so popular it gets requested all the time. Best of all it can be done with ease in a food processor (or using a bamix) so it's also really fast to make for a picnic or sudden guests!
Altered ingredient amounts. Added an extra tablespoon of milk to the batter and I used ground walnuts instead of hazelnuts. - 11 Jul 2009
Used different ingredients. -used spelt flour -used 1/4 brown sugar instead of it all being caster -added some mixed spice -just before pouring mixture into the pan, i melded some nutella in the microwave (24 secs) and lightly folded it in - 25 Jan 2010
I used my ring gugelhopf cake pan instead of a loaf tin for this. The batter seemed a tad dry so I added a 2nd tablespoon of milk. Walnuts instead of hazelnuts worked well. In general, this cake tastes more of cocoa than bananas and could stand to be a bit sweeter. I'm sure a topping of chocolate frosting would make it better. A moist cake! - 11 Jul 2009
