Making Use of Leftovers - Banana Cake

We have had a bit of leftover fruit this week, with the kids being off, so Little Man and I have been baking. I got this receipe from the internet an age ago, it is so simple to make (I don't even use scales, just guess work with weights) and very tasty! Ideal for using up bananas that have gone black. Great for pack lunches, picnics or with a cup of tea on a Sunday afternoon, I really must go and put the kettle on!

4oz butter or margarine
6oz sugar
8oz self raising flour
2 eggs
2 large or 3 medium, very ripe bananas

Heat the oven to gas mark 4; 180C
Grease a 2lb loaf tin.
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.
Mix in the flour.
Scrape into the loaf tin and bake for 40 minutes then lower teh temperature to gas mark 2; 150C and cook for a further 30 minutes.

Try to let it cool (turned out on a rack) before you devour it.
