Banana breakfast cake for Sweet New Zealand



It is so cold that all the bananas in the market turned black, and the stall holder gave me a bunch for free, so I made a dairy free banana cake for breakfast.


Ingredients

4 ripe bananas
Juice of one lemon
100 g icing sugar + some for dusting
1 pinch ground cinnamon
100 ml vegetable oil
2 eggs
200 g self rising flour

Mash the bananas with the lemon juice, add the rest of the ingredients (in the order given above) and mix well. Grease a cake mould and pour the cake mixture in, bake at 180°C for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Reverse onto a serving plate (I used my Mum's cameo plate), dust with icing sugar and serve. We have this for breakfast with caffellatte.

  23. Wow, I've never heard of it being so cold it turned bananas black. Anyway, that was your gain, and I would definitely love a piece of this for my breakfast.

    I love your Mum's cameo plate too.

    Hope you manage to stay warm, and I'm sending you lots of good wishes for the year ahead.
