    Made britmums orange and almond cake and wondered if it could be adapted with other fruits so today I made a Banana and cinnamon cake it wasnt too sweet so more like a bread with a cake texture am thinking it would be nice with sweetened quark anyhow it was huge so cut it into 9 slices at 2syns a slice.

    Ingredients
    56g/2oz self raising flour 10syns
    6 eggs
    cup of sweetener
    1 tsp of baking powder 1/2 syn
    2 medium bananas mashed 8 syns
    1tsp of cinnamon think next time I will put 2 in wasnt enough really

    preheat oven to 180

    I separated 2 of the eggs and whisked the 2 egg whites in a bowl and put to one side put all the the other ingredients including the 2 egg yolks you seperated in another bowl and whisk, once nicely mixed fold in the 2 egg whites until there are no big lumps pour mixture into a sandwich tin, i used a silicon one it only just all fit in!
    now I didnt time this lol i think about 40 mins after about 20 I covered the top with foil to stop it burning once out of the oven leav in the tin to cool for a bit then turn out and cut into 9 slices easier than it sounds cut into thirds then each thrid into 3 it works out to 2 syns a slice plus 1/2 syn over so I am going to count one slice at 2.5 the rest at 2 syns I then sprinkled sweetener over the top this will melt and make the top a bit sticky mmmmmm

    here are some pictures

    My book says average banana cooked is 4 syns per ounce its 1.5 syns I didnt weigh I just put in 2 medium ones it does make a really big cake tho and the slice for 2 syns I think is worth it

    I just had a piece and sliced it to make a sandwich type cake and spread with strawberry jam mmmmmm was lovely I suppose you could do that and fill with sliced bananas too bit like a banana sandwich but with cake :)
    planning to try the basic recipe with other fruits just as soon as this one is gone will let you know how they turn out

    I just used tescos lol but any will do, think splenda is better but it costs almost 3 times as much! the sweetener does melt tho and doesnt look like that for long mine now reminds me of the sticky glaze you get on top of a sticky bun am thinking about doing a lemon drizzle cake using this method and dripping the lemon juice over the top so it makes a lemony sticky top mmmmmm

    I just love cake lol

    Thanks.. I ended up getting asda's own, was about £1.20 cheaper!
    Got all the ingredients today and a new cake tin.. AND new digital scales so hopefully it will all look as good as yours, I will post pics when I've done it later on.
    Just a couple of more Qs, that cinnamon, I could only find ground cinnamon, is that right? And how come you have to seperate the eggs if it's all going in the same mixture??

    Made cake this morning. My hubby and I love it. I used Splenda and works a treat. Tastes yummy when you think it has no sugar or fat in it. Will be going in my recipe file.

    if you seperate eggs and whisk it makes the mixture lighter and fluffier also makes the cake look bigger so that it looks nicely risen you could do it without but I would think you would get a flatter denser cake.
    I did just 2 of the eggs because that was just enough to bulk the mixture out anymore I wouldnt of fit it in the tin.

    and yeah ground cinnamon :)

    let us know how it goes

    Glad you liked it Mandy :)

    Kim, did you definitely use SR flour? and baking powder,. They are the only things I can think of as to why it hasn't risen.

    I have mine in the oven now. It's had 40 mins but still isn't cooked in the middle, inside. So I'm sitting here enjoying the aroma, working up a nice appetite! It's risen well, too.

    Yeah I got everything this morning from Asda.. it's th eonly reason I went shopping, just to get the cake ingredients, as I didn't have anything in that I needed.
    I used everything pictured here, including the eggs, so I really don't know what went wrong.
    I covered it in foil after 20 mins too

    hmmm Kim did you whisk the egg whites till stiff? (maybe I didnt make that clear enough)
    also could be your oven :confused: all ovens vary slightly mine is a fan oven so 180 was enough maybe it needs to be a bit of a higher temp or a bit lower maybe it wasnt preheated enough sorry dont know other than that

    What a shame then Kim. How annoying for you :-(

    My son made Britmum's squidgy chocolate cake & although it cooked up ok, it was really bitter. I think he needed to use more sweetener. It's annoying when you make something that goes wrong, you really look forward to it & then it's not very nice.

    Stiff is when you can hold the bowl upside down over your head and the whisked egg stays put and doesn't fall on you!!!!!! lol
