Banana, Date and Walnut Cake

Published March 4, 2014 by Storm

There are certain dates over the course of a work year when I feel the need to ply my colleagues with cake.  Monday was one of those days.  I considered trying a new cake recipe but, wanting one cake to suit vegans and non-vegans alike, I decided to play it safe with one of my own creations which has become a reliable fall back over the years.

This is it:


3 medium bananas

5oz self-raising flour (I use wholemeal)

4oz sunflower spread (choose one with a low water content)

4oz sugar (I normally use soft brown)

1oz pitted dates

1oz walnut halves


Preheat oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.

Thoroughly mix all ingredients in a food processor.

Lightly grease a 1lb loaf tin, pour the cake mix into the tin.

Bake for around 45 minutes, until a skewer or smooth knife comes out clean after poking into the centre of the cake.

Allow to cool in the tin for about 15 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to finish cooling.
