Day 40 - Banana Cake

Sometimes I am convinced the boys refuse bananas so they will go off and I'll have to make this. This is a recipe from AB's first boss when he (finally) decided he was going to be a chef. She ran this fabulous little deli called The Wild Gourmet in one of Sydney's gently rich suburbs. You know, the ones where people would drop in a pick up something for dinner because they were running late from tennis, the beautician or bridge. It should only be made in a ring tin, and certainly not iced. I have no idea why, it's just the rule.

2 tblsp butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 very ripe bananas, well mashed
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp bi-carb
1 tsp baking powder
2 tblsp milk

Preheat oven to 190C
Cream butter and sugar
Add egg, bananas and sifted dry ingredients a bit at a time
Add milk
Cook in well greased ring tin for 35-40 minutes.
