Here is a recipe for a banana cake to die for (dont be concered too much on the long list of steps/'s well worth the effort) It can be served as a dessert drizzled with golden syrup and cream or as a cake to have with coffee. I love it hot with stack of fresh cream!

I really enjoyed this cake! The sweet syrup soaked banana dotted bottom and fluffy moist interior was very visually appealing....and tasted fantastic too. I enjoyed this as is. No need for anything else! I used a 8" round glass baking dish which was the perfect size. Since I used non hydrogenated margarine instead of butter I decreased it to 45g for the syrup and 50g for the cake. Thanks Stardustannie!!

this was delicious, best eaten warm and fresh as not that attractive after a day..

I am normally not partial to banana cake, but this was really delicious. I firstly had it hot with cream and icecream, and then, cold with butter (totally unnecessary but a weakness of mine) and both ways were wonderful. Thank you Stardust, and I look forward to you posting many more yummy recipes.
