Banana and Rum Cake

Banana and Rum Cake

Up visiting the boyfreind and while he is at work for the day decided to use up some decidedly brown bananas in some Banana Bread , if nothing else it promotes the domestic goddess look to have the smell of baking wafting through the house when he gets home .

There is also a bottle of rum left over from summer festival drinking so its Banana and Rum Cake , he is a bit short on cake tins so I used a small roasting tin lined with greaseproof paper which worked really well making 8 big chunky slabs of moist cake . The bananas on top go nice and chewy .

Banana and Rum Cake

3 overipe bananas
175g self raising flour
175g butter
175g soft brown sugar
20ml of rum

1. Preheat the oven to 160degC and line the tin ( 30cmx20cm) with greaseproof paper
2. Peel and mash 2 of the bananas, thickly slicing one other
3. Cream the butter & sugar together then beat in the eggs.
4. Mix in the 2.5 mashed bananas and rum.
5. Fold in the flour.
6. Turn into the tin , covering the top with the remaining sliced banana and bake for about an hour.

This could probably be served with custard as a pudding acutually , and I would have added walnuts if these were any around but should keep us going .
