Treacle Banana Cake

Banana cake is comfort food for me. I just love the aroma of it baking in the oven perfuming the house. I tweaked a recipe to include the treacle, and it’s come up really nice. It has a caramelised characteristic to it compared to the common garden variety.

Ingredients: (makes one 20cm round cake or 12 large muffins)
125g unsalted butter, softened
¾ brown sugar
1 large tbsp treacle
A pinch of salt
1 ½ cups plain flour
1 tsp bicarb soda
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 large bananas, mashed
1/3 cup buttermilk

1.          Preheat oven to 160C.
2.          Cream butter and sugar, add salt, vanilla, bananas and eggs. Mix well.
3.          Sift in the flour and bicarb soda.
4.          Gently fold it in pouring the buttermilk in two lots.
5.          Mix evenly.
6.          Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30-40 minutes for a cake, and 15 minutes for muffins.
