Light Fluffy Banana Cake

Light Fluffy Banana Cake

This banana cake is absolutely delicious, super easy and quick to make and did I mention sooooooooooo tasty and good!




Plus it’s the perfect way of using up those overripe bananas I have in the cupboard! We always have a stock of bananas in the house but recently the weather has been very close and humid so they have been ripening super-fast – which has left me with a whole bunch of overripe bananas.




Usually I just freeze them – ripe bananas make the perfect Banana Yonanas (I probably ought to mention here that Banana Yonanas is the perfect accompaniment for this Banana Cake!)




But today a) they seemed just a little riper than I like them to be before freezing and b) I thought it would be fun to do something a bit different this time.




It’s funny because I wasn’t really a fan of bananas as a child so things like Banana Cake would never have been my treat of choice however recently I have come to love bananas and when running through ideas for using up overripe bananas (such as banana muffins, banana pancakes, banana fritters etc.) Banana Cake just sounded so yummy plus it was super easy to make a healthy, free-from version.




Because of the fresh fruit I would advise eating within 4-5 days of making. I can’t promise exactly how well it lasts as the second it comes out of the oven I have a queue waiting for a slice!




This scrumptious cake is light, fluffy, moist and perfect for a grab-and-go breakfast, with a mid-morning cup of tea or served with a scoop of ice cream for a luxurious dessert!
