Using stuff up cake

After dropping J off at the allotment with all the card and shredded paper my little Zoe could hold I came back to potter around. A quick look at the slightly overripe bananas in the kitchen meant it was time to make cake. I also had some walnuts left over from making carrot cake for J's birthday at the weekend so in they went too. A super quick chuck-it-all-in-the-food-processor cake that has left the house smelling really nice too!

Banana and walnut cake

300g Self-Raising Flour
200g Margarine
200g Sugar
3 ripe bananas roughly broken up
4 eggs
handful of walnuts roughly chopped!

Place everything except the walnuts in the food processor and whiz until thoroughly mixed. Then sprinkle in the walnuts and give it a quick mix.

Pour into a greased and lined tin and bake on Gas Mark 6 for approx. 45 minutes until the skewer comes out clean. I used a square 24cm tin for bar-type slices. A smaller deeper tin will also work of course, just adjust the cooking tie to compensate for deeper batter.
When baked transfer to a cooling rack and leave to cool before cutting into slices. Alternatively serve warm with either raspberry sauce or custard for a lovely pud!

Let it cool for cake or eat warm for pud
