I think this might be the last recipe I managed to save before my blog went pop and I'm sharing because it's a goody! It's quick and simple, fills the kitchen with a wonderful smell and tastes delicious. I've actually got one baking in the oven as I type, which will go down lovely after the school-run, alongside a bucket of tea - it's blowing a hooley out there! Blummin' February...



Banana & Polenta Loaf Cake


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 over ripe bananas - mashed
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 100ml coconut oil / light olive oil
  • 1 cup SR flour
  • 1 cup polenta
  • maple syrup for brushing (optional)


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 170c / 325f / gm3.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together your eggs, mashed bananas and sugar. Slowly add the coconut oil and sift in the flour. Add the polenta & mix well.
  3. Pour into a greased loaf tin (or silicone equivalent) and bake in the middle of the oven for 45 - 50 minutes.
  4. Once open, transfer to a cooling rack & brush with a little maple syrup (optional, but I like the sheen it gives!) and leave to cool.
  5. Slice and enjoy :)
