GBBO inspired Mummy Win of the Week – yummy banana cake!

My win of the week (something I’ve just managed to do again for the first time since having my baby) was inspired this week by The Great British Bake Off: baking a banana cake!

Pre-baby, I loved getting my bake on. Obviously, I hope when baby is older we’ll be getting our bake on together, but for now it felt amazing to find enough pockets of time in one day to accomplish a complete, fully baked cake. Not to mention getting to watch the GBBO final with baby in one hand and homemade cake in the other – doesn’t get better than that!

If you fancy a go at my easy, throw it together in a bowl, banana cake here’s how. (Note: This cake is definitely not my own original recipe/method, rather passed on to me by a family member… however its actually origin is a mystery to me!)


3 ripe banana

2 eggs

1 cup of sugar

1.5 cups of self raising flour

125g butter

1tsp bicarb

2 tbsp milk


  1. Mix together the sugar and butter in a bowl
  2. Mix the other ingredients in another bowl
  3. Combine the 2 mixes


4. Put combined mix into a lined baking tin (I use a silicone loaf style tin)

5. Cover with foil at 150 for 40 mins, then remove the foil for a further 25-30 mins.

6. Enjoy!
