6 oz caster sugar
2 large eggs
8 oz self raising flour
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp milk

14 oz Rhubarb chopped
2 tbsp caster sugar

1. Pre heat oven to 190. Line and grease a round cake tin.

2. First make the stewed rhubarb (I always make at least 4 times the amount, eat it for breakie with some yoghurt). In a large pan mix the rhubarb with the sugar and elderflower over a low heat, leave to go soft for 20 mins or so stirring occasionally. Leave to cool.

3. Next make the banana cake. Mash the bananas in the magimix, then add the sugar, marg, eggs, flour, and baking powder. Whiz till well blended.

Add the milk and whiz again.

4. Poor mixture into tin, then spoon the rhubarb on top.

5. Bake for about 50 mins, cook on rack.

  1. Made this last night for guests, served with custard- it was delicious and the perfect way of using up rhubarb and bananas that needed eating. Thank you!
