  • Preparation time……10mins
  • Baking time………….45-50mins
  • serves …………………8-10


  1. 200g self raising flour
  2. 100g ground nuts (I like using hassle nut but any one should do just fine)
  3.  125g butter at room temp
  4. 100g sugar
  5. 3 ripe bananas
  6. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  7. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  8. 2 large eggs
  9. 1 cup of plain yoghurt (would still be fine without
  10. pinch of salt
  11. A flavour of you choice…(I use lemon back or cinamon)

Preparation method

  1. Preheat oven at 180 degrees Celsius
  2. Cream butter and Sugar until it looks fluffy and well mixed
  3. Add eggs one after another
  4. Marsh the banana and add into the butter, sugar egg mixture
  5. Add the plain yoghurt
  6. let it mix well for about 2mins
  7. In a big bowl mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nuts and flavour. Add this to the wet ingredients. Just mix well enough for everything to be well incorporated. Note, the mixture may look hard and not very fluid but this is OK as it.
  8. Pour into a greased baking pan and bake for about 45-50 mins at 180 degrees Celsius. Make sure that a toothpick inserted comes out clean before taking the cake out to cool.
  9. Enjoy!!!
