Banana cake

What I love about a banana cake is you can go wild with variations. Want to add chocolate or nuts? Go ahead!

For this one I only used cinnamon and clove.

I love this combination ever since I made baklav. It's an awesome combination.

Especially if you have some old bananas left, this is great to make. I don't know about you but I hate mushy bananas, but love them in this cake.

You could, to make the cake healthier, use a sugar replacement. I'm a fan of Good Good sugar, you can buy it at Holland & Barret.

This doesn't have a bitter aftertaste and isn't grainy after baking.
