My family thought this was the best banana cake they had ever had. I didn't have the nuts or banana essence I used vanilla essence instead and it still tasted terrific. A bit of fiddling around but well worth the effort. My family liked eating it still warm from the oven with whipped cream! It only lasted one meal. Read More

I didn't have any nuts or banana essence so i left those out added in Mixed fruit which I also upped the weight to 100g. I also dropped the amount of margarine down to 200g. I also didn't separate the eggs or sieve the flour which didn't seem to make much difference. The result was a fairly nice moist cake although was missing something a little bland. Read More
