After a conversation where a friend said she was off to have a coffee and a banana, I wondered what banana cake would taste like with coffee in it. Care to give it a go and let me know what you think ?
A different twist on a previous recipe.
2lb loaf tin
OVEN TEMPERATURE : Gas 4, 180 c, 350 f.
COOKING TIME : 1 hours, 15 mins
100g (4oz) butter, softened.
175g (6oz) castor sugar.
2 ripe bananas, mashed.
225g (8oz) S.R. flour.
1 tsp baking powder.
12 tblsp milk.
1tblsp instant coffee granules.
Measure all ingredients into a mixing bowl and beat well until smooth, leave to stand for about a minute for the coffee granules to disperse slightly and mix again.
Spoon the mixture into a 2lb loaf tin and sprinkle a few more coffee granules on the top for effect.
Bake for a little over an hour until a testing skewer comes out clean.
Leave to cool in the tin for a couple of minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.
