14.) Banana Cake #2

Cakes without recipes are fun. But when taking a 7 hour road trip, it's maybe better to say Yes! Give me a recipe! I took this cake on the road, so there are no photos. However, the whole thing was devoured and that speaks for itself.

To the right is a photo of the Mont St. Michel. Construction on this site began during the 1oth century AD and continued until the 18th century. Today, several monks still live in the monastery but it is essentially a very impressive tourist operation. A winding path lined with tourist trap shops and museums leads up, up, and up to the top of the mount. Once inside though, it's very easy to imagine what life may have been like in this austere and severe building hundreds of years ago.

The recipe!

¼ cup milk
2 ripe bananas
1 cup sugar
2 cups self raising flour
2 eggs
60 g (2 oz) butter

Combine milk and peeled mashed bananas. Add sugar, sifted flour, lightly beaten eggs, softened butter to milk and bananas. Beat until your arm feels like it might fall off. Turn mixture into flexipan. Bake in low to moderate oven approx 40 minutes or until done. Cool 10 minutes before turning out to complete cooling.
