Yes definitely you can make it with marg. I have done so for years, and am renown for my banana cakes. My recipe is the Edmonds book one, I use heaps of banana's, I think the recipe is 2-3 depending on size I have used 3-4, sometimesdirect from the freezer, and my banana cakes are beautifully moist.Important to make sure the soda and milk froth well.
Secret with banana cakes is to not overcook, press the centre till it just gently springs back, and test with a skewer inserted in the centre.
Good luck and enjoy.

Totally agree with Kinna, I have done the same for years as well and everyone loves my banana cake and loaves. I double the recipe and make one cake and one loaf.

Butterless Banana Cake :

1.5 cups of plain flour
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
3/4 cup of sugar

Sift into large bowl, then add :

2 eggs (lightly beaten)
1/2 cup oil (I use Olys or Rice Bran)
3 mashed bananas

Mix and pour into a lined cake tin. Bake at 150 C for 1 hour.
15 Prep time - and it's lovely! Ice with icing of your choice.

Just made this one for the 1st time and will do so again. Just add more banana!

Whizz cake BANANA CAKE - No melting, no mashing, and no creaming. Place in kitchen whizz: 1 1/4 cups sugar, 100gr butter, 1/2 cup milk, 2-3 bananas, 2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla and blend till smooth. Add: 2 cups flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt. Bake in lined 23cm tin in moderate oven 40-50 minutes until cake springs back when touched. Leave in tin 5-10 minutes before turning out.
Sorry didn't note the original poster, I use oil instead of butter with no problem & have also used GF flour successfully.

Yep, in fact I think the marg is better. I often bake with marg.
Good ol Edmonds with an extra banana is still a goodie.
