Friday Food–Banana cake & choc chip biscuits

Welcome to another Friday Food (yeah I know it’s Saturday). Didn’t do any baking today but I have two recipes to share with you I made earlier this week.

First up is Banana Cake. This is super easy and a great use of those super ripe, super brown (& I’ve found pretty cheap) bananas.

You’ll need:

125g softened butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 large ripe bananas, mashed
11/2 cup self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarb
pinch salt
1/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease cake tin..
Cream butter & sugar until light & fluffy, beat in eggs gradually. Stir in half sifted dry ingredients & banana. Mix to combine. Fold in remaining dry ingredients & milk. Spoon into cake tin.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until cooked. Cook cake for 5 minutes in tin before turning out.
(Have a food processor? Cream the butter & sugar first then add all the remaining ingredients. Makes it super quick.)

and the second is Choc chip cookies (or biscuits, whatever)
You’ll need:
90g butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 cup chocolate chips
11/2 cup self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarb

Cream butter & sugar. Mix vanilla & egg. Beat egg into butter mixture. Stir in remaining ingredients.
Place heaped teaspoonful onto greased oven trays. Bake at 180°C for 10 minutes.

    We’ve just discovered bananas for $6.99/kg, so we might be able to get back into banana cake baking again!!! 🙂
