A simple Banana Almond cake recipe. Put together because I wanted to try out combining two ingredients which I love, bananas and almonds, into a cake. I love these two ingredients in bakery as well as eaten by themselves or together. Try out my recipe and see how you enjoy it.

This recipe is simple, therefore it allows you to build up on it by adding other ingredients which you may fancy e.g. berries.


1. 150g or 5 oz of butter or margarine (I used Clover). Melt this into your mixing bowl 

2.Two or three Bananas. Break it up and add it into the the butter/margarine

3.Mix together into a batter. Depending on the texture you like. Either completely mix it or leave a few chunks of banana in the batter

4. 1/2 Teaspoon each of baking soda and baking powder. Add to the mixture and mix

5. Two tablespoons full of Honey & One free range egg (or any egg you have). Crack egg into your mixture and mix

6. 270g or 9oz of self risen flour

7. One level teaspoon of Nutmeg. Add flour and nutmeg to mixture and mix

8. Grease your baking tin with a teaspoon of olive oil

9. Transfer your mixture into the baking tin and add on top of it 100g or 3.5oz of flaked almonds

10. Gently mix the almonds into the mixture whiles in the tin

11. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 220℃. Ready when your knife comes out clean after passing it through the middle of the cake

12. Enjoy with tea, coffee, yogurt, what ever you fancy or on its own.
