Bananas are best eaten as they are but I’m sure many of you are like me who often bought too many or eat too little. Bananas get ripe very fast and before long, they develop brown spots. My children don’t eat bananas that have brown spots while I like them because I think they are sweeter.

Anyway, just too often, I have a lot of over ripe bananas at home. One of the best ways to use them up is to make banana cakes out of them. Sometimes when I miss banana cakes, I would purposely buy more to let them get over ripe before using them.

It was Friendship Day yesterday so I decided to make a banana cake to share with some friends. Keeping friendship fresh is important and sharing food with friends is one of the ways. I have my best banana cake recipe here for you. You can eat it on its own or you can go with whipped cream or even ice-cream. A cup of hot tea goes great with it too.

Line a baking tin with baking paper and heat up the oven to 180 degress Celcius.

Ingredients A
3-4 medium bananas (mash)

Ingredients B
250g butter
1C sugar
4 eggs
1C milk
1T lemon juice (add to milk)
3C self-raising flour

Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in eggs one at a time and beat well after each addtion. Add in the mashed bananas and milk. Stir well. Sieve in the flour and mix. Pour into the cake tin and bake for about 40 minutes. Use a skewer to test for doneness.
