Don`t throw away Black Bananas! We had left over bananas at home. We placed them in the fridge to make a cake in the next coming days but never got around to it, so in the freezer they went for two weeks. Totally black skinned and frozen solid. They are perfect for using up in banana cakes and breads. Make small cupcake sizes and the kids will love them. Great to pack in the school lunch box too! Not very sweet, all whole ingredients and delicious! These are really simple and nice, worth baking if you haven’t already done so, not really sweet, nutritional natural ingredients and economical.

Step 11 – for whole cakes cook for approx 60 – 65 minutes making sure at the 30minute mark rotate the cakes swapping oven shelves.

NB: This is a banana bread so it can get a little dry. We found that the smaller cakes stay a little more moist.
