Banana Cake

This is a wonderful moist banana cake.  It doesn’t matter if you use two or four ripe bananas – the cake will always turn out delicious.

125g unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
1 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
3 very ripe bananas
Juice of 1 lemon
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup almond meal

Preheat the oven to 180ºC.  Line a loaf tin with baking paper.

Beat butter, sugar and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy.  Add one egg at a time, beating well after each addition.

Mash bananas and lemon juice in a small bowl until smooth.

Add mashed bananas, flour, baking soda and almond meal to the cake mixture.  Mix well using a large metal spoon.

Spoon cake mixture into the prepared cake tin.  Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.  Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.  Dust with icing sugar.
