    Wisley Cafe's Banana Cake

    "In the café, we serve this with a rich topping," says Sue. "Make your own by beating 75g softened butter and 125g full-fat soft cheese with 200g sifted icing sugar and a dash of vanilla extract."

    • Preparation time: 30 minutes
    • Cooking time: 40 minutes to 45 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes 60 minutes 15 minutes

    Makes: 1 x 900g loaf


    • 2 ripe bananas (about 400g)
    • 150g softened butter
    • 150g soft brown sugar
    • 80g sultanas
    • 300g plain flour
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • 2 medium eggs, lightly beaten
    • 100ml vegetable oil


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Butter a 900g loaf tin and line the bottom and sides with non-stick baking parchment.
    2. Peel and mash the bananas. Put the butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and cream together until light and fluffy. Stir in the bananas and sultanas. Sift together the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda. Add the flour mix and the beaten egg, each about a third at a time, to the banana mix, beating well between each addition. Finally, stir in the oil.
    3. Pour into the loaf tin and bake for 40-45 minutes until well risen and golden brown and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Leave in the tin for 10 minutes then turn out on to a wire rack to cool completely.
