I had been avoiding making this one for a while, as I’m the only one in the house who likes banana cake, but I’ve finally given in and decided i’ll eat the whole lot myself if i have to! This is the best banana cake recipe I’ve ever created in my life, it is perfectly moist, the softness of the banana and the texture of the sponge work beautifully together to give a light cakey texture.
You could add some thin slices of banana on the top before it goes in the oven if that’s your kind of thing, but i chose to just leave mine plain. You can also add a teaspoon of cinnamon if you like!
