Banana and chocolate loaf cake. I just got a recipe online but it is squiggly and delicious.

Banana bread, there is a lovely recipe on the BBC website if you google 'banana bread BBC fairtrade' (their non-fairtrade recipe has complicated things like buttermilk in, that we don't have at home) its got dried fruit in it as well - yummy.

Heston Blumenthal's dried banana chip and bacon cookies grin
But banana bread is good too. Or I have a great carrot cake recipe which is heavy on the bananas if you want.

Those pancakes sound good! I've got a recipe for low sugar banana bread online actually Not sure how old your dd is, I'm trying not to turn my ds into a sugar addict like his mother...

Banana Loaf – Best Ever

4oz butter
4 oz brown sugar (use any color)
1 egg
1Ilb banana
3 tbsp yogurt, any flavor or plain or crème fraise
1 tsp vanilla ess
8 oz plain flour
1 tsp bicarb
1 tsp cinnamon
4 oz raisins

Gas 4 oven with shelf in middle
Grease and line a 7x11 loaf tin

Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat together – or put in food processor and push button. Then add egg and beat till smooth. Add banana’s if doing by hand mash first, if in and push processor then just chop them into the bowl button. Add yogurt and vanilla essence.

Sift in the flour, bicarb, cinnamon and push button or stir.

Finally add the raisins (don’t push button as the raisins will disappear!!) just mix in with a spoon and then pour the mixture into the bread /loaf tin and level off with a shake and put in the oven for one hour and twenty mins – check a cocktail stick comes out clean and it is cooked.

Turn out and let it cool. Then cut into slices and put each slice in a freezer bag – pop in the freezer and use when required Ideal for pack – ups as the slice of loaf will have defrosted by lunch time.

Try using dried blueberries or cranberries instead or aswell as the sultanas. This cake does keep well in a tin and will mature with age – if ever allowed.

I made it this week and didn't have yogurt or creme fraich so put in a couple of tablespoons of milk and it was still lovely and lasted all of three days.

This is more loaf than cake, it is moist and not lights or dry
