Ad-lib ~ Scrummy Yummy Banana cake

I am a cook who likes (occasionally) to ad lib with my cooking as we recently moved this has become fairly regular which in meals such as curries and variations of mixed grill style lunch or supper it does not matter so much. However I have recently ad-libbed on my ‘Banana cake’ twice each for the gluten and dairy free version and for the normal version.


1st Ad-lib Gluten and Dairy free Banana cake

Ingredients
2 ripe peeled bananas
1 egg
100grams 4 ounces oats
100grams 4 ounces sugar
100grams 4 ounces spread or sunflower oil
100grams 4 ounces gluten free bread flour
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon Vanilla essence
1 tablespoon Golden syrup
100 ml milk dairy free

Method
Line a deep 8″ cake tin square or round with greaseproof paper.
Turn the oven on to 180 for an electric fan oven, gas mark 5 or 190 for an electric oven without a fan.
Place the egg, banana, sugar, syrup, spread/oil, oats, vanilla essence, into a large bowl which thoroughly with an electric whisk until the banana is blended into the mixture and no lumps are left.
Take out the whisk.
Put in the flour and baking soda using a metal spoon fold in the mixture slowly and gently adding the milk gradually.
Gently scoop or pour out the mixture into the lined cake tin and smooth and flatten the surface.
Place into the oven baking for one hour checking with a cake skewer or similar slim implement to check if cooked.
N.B. If not leave in the oven for five or ten minutes depending on how moist and sticky the mixture still is ~ longer if stickier less if not too sticky on the skewer.

Enjoy hot with butter as this is more of a bread style cake with the bread flour!
