Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Grease a medium-sized cake mould or loaf tin. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and pale. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each. Add the mashed bananas and mix well.

Sift together the barley and cake flours, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt, then fold into the buttery egg mixture. Add the milk and date and mix through.

Pour into the prepared mould and bake for one hour, or until a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin before unmoulding.
When absolutely cool, top with the caramel.
