Banana cake with honey

Banana cake with honey

This recipe is from Philippa Davis (@Philippadavis_privatechef) who loves cooking with Hive & Keeper honey!

For me this is the perfect banana cake, not too sweet, hints of spice and not too dense. Delicious with a raw honey that has a natural caramel flavour. Try one of these honeys

Pre heat the oven to 170 ° C and grease and line a 1 ltr loaf tin.

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe bananas peeled
  • 2 tbs orange or apple juice
  • 130g room temperature salted butter
  • 2 free range  / organic eggs
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ nutmeg – grated
  • 2 tbs honey (one with a natural caramel flavour would be delicious)
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 250g self taising flour

 

Instructions

In a free standing mixer beat the bananas till mushed, add the juice, butter, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, syrup and sugar and beat for a couple of minutes. Stop the mixer. Scrape down the sides then beat for another minute. Stop it again, add all the flour in one go and then beat on a low speed for 1 minute and the mixture is totally combined.

 Scoop the batter into the loaf tin and bake on the centre shelf for 40  – 50 mins or a cake skewer comes out clean.
