Banana Cake (Aussie Bear's )
50 g margarine
100 g sugar
225 g plain flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
3 bananas - mashed
50 g walnuts - chopped
Choc bits (optional)
Glazed cherries, halved (optional)
Preheat the oven to 180 deg C
Mix the margarine and sugar with a mixer until smooth.
Gradually add the eggs while mixing.
Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder, and continue mixing.
Finally, add the mashed bananas, glazed cherries, choc bits and walnuts, and mix.
Pour the mixture in a greased cake mould or loaf tin, and bake for about 1 hour.
(When I made this, I made it in a ring tin and it was a little dry. An hour to bake may be a little too long - check it at 50 minutes)
