  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 110g golden caster sugar

  • 2 tbsp honey

  • 50ml sunflower oil

  • 400g wholemeal self-raising flour

  • 2 medium eggs

  • 2 small bananas pureed

  • 300g carrot grated

  • 350g tinned pineapple chunks (small, in natural juice)

  • 110g sultanas or raisins


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Mix together the sugar with the sunflower oil, add the eggs and mix well.
  3. Add the pineapple chunks (it works well to slightly blend them - but not too much as you want some chunks to be left). Mix well.
  4. Gradually add the flour and mix in. Finally add the baking powder, honey, grated carrot and sultanas.
  5. Pour the mixture into a greased tin and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes until risen and when a fork comes out of the cake clean.
  6. Leave to stand and set for at least 45 minutes before serving then enjoy!

Handy Hint

For a topping, use cream cheese mixed with icing sugar and the zest and juice from one orange.
I like to add walnuts for a change sometimes too!
