Out on this one. Baked a double quantity from Edmonds recipe in the weekend & it was dry. Going to tryAunt Daisy recipe next time as it is more sponge than cake. Plus I don't ever bake any recipes that contain oil..

Can you pse give a link. Doesn't come up under user name in l/h message board. Thanx.

Actually the Edmonds one is the only one I use....if its dry just add more milk at the end.It's'dropping' consistency you're looking for. Recipes don't always have to be followed to the T. You can change them to suit here & there

badams1, May 25, 6:29am
thanks jessie, that saved me time. let me know, if you find anything. may have to do a trial bake, with all my years of experience. never measure anything, ...i know....

pamellie, hows the texture of this one,,,,

I always use the Edmonds one but I always add extra bananas I think it says 2, I add 4 and better still from the freezer. Have never had a dry one yet. Cooking time is very important tho, err on the underdone side, I check mine constantly in the last 10mins of cooking, continually testing with a skewer.

BANANA CAKE WITH CRUNCHY WALNUT TOPPING

125g butter
2 eggs
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar
3 bananas
1/4 cup milk

Place soft butter and sugar in large bowl. Mix until smooth. Add eggs then bananas. Add flour, baking powder and milk. Mix until flour is just mixed in.

Trick is don't overmix a banana cake otherwise it will go gluggy.

Spread into greased circle tin. (I use a bunt cake tin). Next add topping.

TOPPING

2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts

Melt butter and add remaining ingredients, combine together and drizzle over the cake.

Bake at 180oC 35-40 mins.

thanks for the hint, nice topping, will make for the cake tin. r-mvz
