I got this recipe from my aunt, Lilian Dalton, who lives in Howick, New Zealand. Never mind me, even my mother can make it, so it must be easy. Like chicken and sweetcorn soup, it tastes as if it's got much more recipe than it actually has.

Banana Cake

4ozbutter or margarine (I used Golden Crown)
2big bananas
8ozself-raising flour
Mash the bananas with a sturdy fork.  
Cream the butter and sugar together, and mix in the eggs.
Mix together the two yellow sludges you now have, and mix in the flour.
Scrape into a loaf tin and bake for about 40 minutes at Gas Mark 4/180C/350F.
My aunt's recipe ended here, but when I made it the thing clearly wasn't done in the middle, so I turned the oven down to Mark 2 and left it in for another 30 minutes, whereupon it was fine.
