250g plain flour
5g bicarbonate of soda 120g butter (soft)
120g soft brown sugar 2 eggs
5 bananas (ripe) 100g chopped dates 25ml dark rum
10g caster sugar

250g soft brown sugar 50g golden syrup
50g butter

  • Pre-heat your oven to 160°C.
  • Line a round cake tin with greaseproof paper.
  • Soak the dates in the rum and set aside for half an hour.
  • Using a food mixer with the whisk attachments, cream the butter and the sugar.
  • Add the eggs and 4 bananas and mix well until all is combined.
  • Fold in the flour, bicarbonate of soda and the soaked dates.
  • Pour into the lined tin and bake for 45 mins - 1 hour.
