75g/2¾oz wholemeal flour

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp ground mixed spice

100g/3½oz butter, softened

100g/3½oz caster sugar

2 large bananas, mashed

2 eggs, lightly beaten

100g/3½oz pecan nuts, roughly chopped





1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease and line a 900g/2lb loaf tin.

2. Sift together the flours, bicarbonate of soda and mixed spice, tipping any bran in the sieve into the bowl.

3. In a large bowl beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the bananas and egg, then stir in the flour mixture along with 75ml/5tbsp boiling water. Stir in the pecan nuts.

4. Spoon the mixture into the tin and smooth out the top. Bake for about 1 hour until risen and golden. Delicious served warm.

Well the banana and chocolate cake was a great hit with the boys today! Great recipe and very easy to make - just chuck it all in and whisk. I cooked it for about an hour though. Came out very light and fluffy inside with a heavenly crispy outer ....... :drool:


Must go and eat the last piece before the kids decide to have it for breakfast tomorrow :roll::oops:8)
