You don't use rotten banana's in banana cakes. just old banana's/brown skinned

Thats what i mean. Do you know how to make the bananas brown!

they don't have to be brown either,ripe bananas will do the trick

Ive made a banana cake with ripe banans but i found that the cake was darker in colour and tasted more banana like with brown/black bananas

Rotten bananas make the best tasty banana cake .
if only I'd taken a pic of the latest bakes which was meant to be week's work lunches for 2 friends, end up being devoured by 10+ with nil left for thelunch boxes.

That's too instant a fix you're wanting.if you were going to make the cake in two or three days, you could hasten the ripening by putting the bananas in a brown paper bag with an apple.

Mash them on a plate and leave them for a few hours. They'll go brown.
Or ask your kids to take them to school in their school bags for the day. Guaranteed to work.

lol. yep, they could even get split.

I wouldn't make a banana cake with under ripe, bananas.
Make a carrot or chocolate cake, and enjoy it.

Freeze the Bananas today then make cake with thawed Bananas tomorrow

It works (don't forget the slosh of dark rum really gets the Banana flavour going :)

Just buy them from New World where they have no shelf life after being in cold storage for too long.

Incidently the black or brown bananas are actually ripe. We tend to eat them before they are.
