I figured I might as well share these with the rest of the world; then the rest of the world can be somewhat inspired by some of the easiest baking recipes I have EVER come across...and in doing so unwittingly share in my 'stubborn-spare-tyre' plight. Hehehe ;)
So. First off, here is a recipe for The world's MOST Delicious Banana Cake.
Preheat oven to a medium-low heat (100degC./gas mark 2)
8oz self-raising flour
6oz (part caster/part icing) sugar
4oz softened margarine
3 large free-range eggs
4 medium-sized overripe bananas blended (makes for a moister cake)
2 generous Tbsp golden syrup
1tsp vanilla essence
pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients thoroughly
Bake in a v. well greased tin on a low heat (100oC) for between 1hr 15mins to 1hr 30mins.
Leave in tin to cool then transfer onto wire rack to finish cooling.
Best eaten within first 2 days - (not that this should be a problem...) - even better eaten straight out of the ove (once it's had time to cool down enough obviously)
This is indecently yummy. Enjoy.
