  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 340g caster sugar

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)

  • 225g wholemeal flour

  • 2 eggs

  • 225g plain flour

  • 2 tbsp butter softened (or margarine)

  • 120ml sour milk (if you don't have make it by adding 1 tsp vinegar to normal milk and wait to curdle)

  • 3-4 ripe bananas smashed


  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and wet ingredients in a different bowl. Combine both. It is not necessary to mix too much, just combine.
  2. Butter and flour dust the cake tin before putting the mixture in.
  3. Bake at 180C for about 40 minutes in a pre-heated oven.
  4. Check if it is cooked in the middle with a cocktail stick, if it comes clean it is ready, if not bake for another few minutes.
  5. Brew your favourite tea or coffee, sit back and enjoy!

Handy Hint

I usually divide into 2 loaf tins but you can use any shape.

    My family devours it every time. It is very good to save up the bananas. It is very easy to make, smell and tastes delicious. Nobody can tell it is make with going back bananas and sour milk. Saving the pennies!
