About this recipe:
My favourite way to use up old bananas - no fussing about with pans, just drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a baking tray and pop in the oven! Ready in 15 minutes and delicious.
Makes: 16 to 24 drop cakes
225g butter or margarine
250g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
250g mashed banans
440g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
250g chocolate chips (optional)
- Heat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Grease a baking tray or line with baking parchment.
- Cream butter and sugar until pale. Beat in eggs and vanilla, then bananas.
- Mix in flour, baking powder and bicarb. Stir through chocolate chips (if using). Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto baking tray.
- Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until edges turn golden brown. Leave on baking tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
You can use self raising flour instead of plain, just leave out out the baking powder and bicarb of soda.
