·         3 large black bananas
·         75g vegetable oil or sunflower oil (weight), plus extra for greasing

·         Baking powder
·         3 tsp cinnamon or mixed spice
·         50g dried fruit or nuts (optional)

3.   Bake in a greased, lined 2lb loaf tin for 20 minutes. Check and cover with foil if the cake is browning.
