Walnut, and honey cake
This tea time treat uses up leftover bananas well and makes for a beautiful cake.

225g self-raising flour

½ tsp ground cinnamon

175g softened butter

100g light muscovado sugar

3 tbsp clear honey

2 eggs, beaten

2 medium, ripe bananas

50g pack walnut pieces

Line the base and long sides of a 900g loaf tin with greaseproof paper, buttering the tin and the paper.

In a large bowl, add the flour, cinnamon, butter, sugar, 2 tablespoons of the honey and the eggs into a large mixing bowl.

Mash the bananas into the bowl.

Beat the mixture for 2-3 minutes, using a wooden spoon or mixer, until well blended.

Spoon the mix into the prepared tin and level the top.

Scatter the walnut pieces over.

Bake for 1 hour, then lightly press the top – it will feel firm if cooked. If not, bake for a further 10 minutes.

Cool for 15 minutes, then lift out of the tin using the paper.

When it is cold, drizzle the remaining honey over and cut into thick slices.

Makes 8-10 slices
