Maple banana loaf

    40 min

    Tastes as yummy and as real as banana loaf but it's as easy as a vanilla sponge! The maple syrup adds special flavour, but you could also use honey or golden syrup.

    I doubled the recipe since I only had a large loaf tin but I followed the instructions to a tee and the cake turned out perfectly. It was really light and smelt amazing as it was cooking. Towards the end I popped a bit of ton foil over the top to stop it from getting too crispy. I would highly recommend anyone to try this.  -  22 Sep 2016
