five minute banana cakeThis speedy Banana Cake recipe, adapted from a vintage Donna Hay recipe, is brilliant; I’ve been making it for years. We love it in our house as it’s a moist,  light and delicious cake that only requires 5 minutes prep time. It’s one of those fab recipes where you biff most of the ingredients into a food processor and turn it on. Done. No elbow grease required.

This is a brilliant standby for school lunches as it keeps really well (if you can keep the family away from it). Oh, and this is easy enough for kids to make too.

Step 2: Add 1 ¾ c plain flour and 1 ½ tsp baking powder to the batter. Process again until combined.

Step 3: (Optional) Add ½ c chocolate chips. Blitz briefly.

Step 4: Spoon mixture into a greased ring cake tin and bake on 180 degrees for 45 minutes (normal bake).
