Mum's Banana and Walnut Cake

My Mum made a banana and walnut cake and a chocolate cake last night yummy, and she kindly shared the recipe.
They were due to leave today but their flight from Greensboro to Newark was cancelled due to bad weather in New York so we have enjoyed another evening together. On the way home we went to the farmers market then made home made tomato soup, with cauliflower cheese and macaroni. 
So tomorrow will be very quiet and a wee bit lonely......, but in a few weeks my hubby's parents are coming from India so will get Indian recipes from my mom in law, but for now I will enjoy my British cakes he he

Banana and Walnut Cake

9” tin

5 oz of Butter

5 oz sugar

3 eggs

 8 oz self raising flour

1. Cream butter and sugar together

3. Add 3 eggs and beat well

4. Mash 1 ½ or 2 bananas

5. Add 3 oz of walnuts and raisins plus banana to mixture and mix

6. Fold in by hand 8 oz of Self Raising Flour

It may need a little milk to keep it fairly fluid


Cook in 350 oven for about 30 mins the cake will be dry on the top and a serrated knife will come out clean.
