This is an extremely easy banana cake recipe. I always use a flat rectangular baking tray for this banana cake so it bakes through, but I bet you can use the loaf tin too and it would come out beautifully. This banana cake serves a legion of hungry flatmates and co-workers for 2 days but then you'll have to bake a new one.

This is a moist banana loaf cake perfect for using up ripe bananas. I usually freeze my old bananas until I have enough for a recipe or two. Just freeze them as they are - peel and all - and thaw for an hour or so at room temperature. I have also used apple sauce in place of the oil to make this low fat. It is not quite as moist, but the flavour is still just as good.

This recipe never fails! So good to eat with some butter while still warm . . . add raisins if you feel fruity!

This is a no-nonsense, foolproof banana cake recipe that my mum always made with her brown bananas that had gone past their prime. She would freeze overripe bananas and then use them to make this cake when she had enough. A lovely banana cake recipe!

A lower calorie, sugar free banana bread with delicious extras for a lighter treat with your favourite cuppa. If you prefer, you can leave out the walnuts and/or sultanas.

This is an old recipe of mine that I've been making for years. It calls for walnuts but you could use other nuts such as almonds or hazelnuts, if you prefer. Tastes good on it's own or with lemon-cream cheese icing.

A moist banana cake studded with walnuts, which you can choose to make into a layer cake sandwiched with cream cheese icing, or simply enjoy plain or dusted with icing sugar. Versatile and incomparably delicious!
