ingredients

makes 1 cake
100 g (4 oz) butter or margarine
100 g (4 oz) light soft brown sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
225 g (8 oz) plain wholemeal flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
2 bananas, peeled and chopped
100 g (4 oz) chopped walnuts
soft brown sugar to decorate

method

1. Line and grease a deep 18 cm (7 in) round cake tin. Cream the butter or margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs.

2. Fold in the flour, baking powder and nutmeg. Carefully fold in the bananas and walnuts.

3. Spoon into the prepared tin, level the top and bake in a moderate oven for 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 hours or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

4. Turn out on to a wire rack, sprinkle the top with soft brown sugar and leave to cool.

Freshly grated nutmeg gives a superior flavour to that which is bought ready grated. Miniature nutmeg graters often have a small compartment in the top to store a whole nutmeg.
