Here’s a yummy Banana Cake that Rebekah made with her Nana in Tauranga.
150 g butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup milk
1 cup mashed banana

Melt the butter, add the sugar, eggs and vanilla essence and mix well.  Sift flour, baking powder and baking soda together in a bowl.  Make a well in the middle and pour in the melted butter mixture, mixing carefully.  Slowly add the milk and mashed banana. Pour into a greased and lined 20cm cake tin. Bake at 180 degrees C. for 30 - 40 minutes.  Let it cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack. Ice with Lemon or Chocolate Icing.

Rebekah likes icing 1/2 the cake with lemon and the other 1/2 with chocolate icing!!!!  She hopes you enjoy it  too!
