Banana and cherry loaf cake.

I've been trying my hand recently at this whole youtube thing, to varying degrees of success, and thought I'd share one of those videos here.

It's only a quick one at just 30 seconds, of a banana and cherry loaf cake that I made for my dad a few weeks ago.

Now that I've moved home again I seem to have started earning my keep by baking cakes. My parents are not complaining.

I hope you enjoy the video! (I'm secretly quite proud of it.)


2oz butter

5oz caster sugar

5oz self-raising flour

1 egg

1 banana

A handful of cherries

A few drops of vanilla essence


  1. Preheat the oven to 170ºC.

  2. Cream butter and caster sugar together.

  3. Add the rest of the ingredients.

  4. Mix until well combined.

  5. Grease and line loaf tin.

  6. Pour in the mixture.

  7. Bake at 170ºC for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
