Here’s our easy to follow recipe for…
Banana and Raisin Cake
- 75g butter
- 100g brown sugar

Prepare the oven – gas mark 4, 180ºC. Position shelf in the centre.
Grease a medium loaf tin or line it with grease-proof paper (of course you can use a rounded cake tin too)
Now get ready to do the mixing – do you dare to let the kids help?!
- Beat the butter with the sugar until it is light and fluffy
- Beat in the egg

Put the banana and raisin cake into the oven and let it bake for 1 – 1 1/4 hours approx.
Test it with a skewer – it should come out clean and not gooey. Leave this yummy banana and raisin cake in the tin for about 10 minutes, then let it cool on a wire tray.
