Banana Cake

 
Banana Cake

I would like to share with you one of my favourite recipes. YENN B&B tries to minimise its environmental footprint and to support fair trade. One of the ways we do this is by offering organic produce in our breakfasts and by using organic cleaning products. Added to this is the fact that Leuven is the world capital of bananas. I often tell this story to my guests who think I’m joking before realising that it’s true. (Nadine Gregoor)

Ingredients for 4 people

4 ripe or very ripe bananas, peeled and sliced/mashed

250g self-raising flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
100g melted butter
200g caster sugar 
2 eggs

Method

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl (or in a food processor) until a smooth mixture is obtained.

Butter and flour a cake tin or line it with baking parchment.
Pour the cake mixture into the tin and bake in a moderate oven until cooked through.
You can either make one large cake or several small cupcakes.

As variations, you can replace the banana with small pieces of seasonal fruit (e.g redcurrants, apples, pears or figs) tossed in a mixture of sugar and ground cinnamon, and you can sprinkle the top of the cake(s) with flaked almonds. 

Serve with

A cup of coffee

« I dreamed up this recipe when I was living in Houston and used to give cookery classes. In a previous class, I had taught my American students to make confit of duck, which was one of their favourites, along with Tarte Tatin, so I decided to combine them ! What’s more this recipe is so easy, a ten-year-old boy managed it very well in a recent cookery class at my home... » (Marielle Teyssier)

« This recipe is the fruit of a long discussion with my sister who shares my passion for good food. We love the fact that our mouths start watering when we talk about food. She told me how she had replaced the butter and milk in her mashed potatoes with olive oil, with delicious results, then we went on to discuss tapenade and the recipes it could be used in, and so this dish which combines mash and tapendade was born… » (Anne-Catherine Deglume)
