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

“This recipe is a delicious souvenir of my childhood. My mother was a simple cook who prepared unsophisticated, healthy and filling meals. Back then, food was better, healthier and fresher. For example we simply rinsed fresh spinach a few times then reduced it to a purée in a pan, chopped it up, then sprinkled over breadcrumbs, salt and pepper before serving. It was simple and delicious. If any left-over bread went stale, my mother made this recipe which we found delicious...” (Lia Kwint-Kruse)
