Banana Fudge Cake

Serves: 8

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1 ½ tbsp skimmed milk
  • 70ml Flora Cuisine
  • 90g self-raising flour
  • 90g soft brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3 chocolate fudge bars diced into small pieces
  • 50g dried banana chips, broken in half (reserve a few whole ones for decoration)
  • 50g dark chocolate, broken into pieces for decoration

METHOD

Preheat the oven to gas mark 3/170oC/150oC fan/325oF.

In a bowl, mash the banana and milk together. Add Flora Cuisine, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and egg and whisk well together. Fold in the broken banana chips and diced fudge (keeping a little fudge back for decoration).

Transfer to a greased, lined 450g/1lb loaf tin or 20cm (8 inch) cake tin and level the top using the back of a damp spoon.

Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes until the cake is golden-brown, well risen and spongy to the touch.

Allow the cake to cool for around 10 minutes before removing from the tin and leaving it to cool on a wine rack.

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cooled cake and top with banana and fudge pieces.


PREP TIME

10-12 minutes (+ 5 mins for decoration)
