Banana and honey tea bread.  The perfect way to use up excess bananas - as if we needed an excuse for cake!


2 large bananas
225g / 8 oz self raising flour
115 g / 4 oz margarine
115 g / 4 oz soft brown sugar
115 g / 4 oz set honey
2 eggs
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg/cinnamon

Preheat oven to 180c/gas mark 4.

Grease and line a 2 lb loaf tin.

Mix together margarine, sugar and honey in a bowl until fluffy. Gradually add eggs, then fold in flour and cinnamon.

Mash the bananas and add the lemon juice.  Fold the bananas into the cake mixture until mixed.
Place mixture into loaf tin and level.  Bake for 1 hour or until risen and firm to the touch. 

Allow to cool.
