About this recipe: This is a nice moist, easy to make loaf, and a recipe I go back to time and time again when I have bananas too ripe to eat.
Can be drizzled with icing sugar if desired.
I usually make just plain old banana cakes but thought I would give this one a try. Although I thought it sounded strange with the fruit I gave it a go the result.... amazing very moist, hard not to eat the whole cake no more plain banana cakes from now on!! I made 2 x 1lb cakes by using 185g flour, 100g demerera sugar, 50g caster sugar, 110g butter, 150g mixed fruit, 3 bananas and 2 eggs used the same amounts of ginger, mixed spice and bicarb as stated in recipe. Baked for 30mins in a pre heated fan oven at 180 - 05 Apr 2014
A recipe similar to this won a Safeway competition a few years back. Quite rightly too. This has to be my absolute fave cake. Useful for using up those really ripe bananas. Yum. - 17 Nov 2013
