Ludgvan Horticultural Show recipe

cake-batterThis year’s Ludgvan Annual Horticultural Show will be held at the Community Centre on Saturday 2nd August.

Some of you have expressed interest in the recipe for this year’s show, which is for a Banoffee Cake, so we’re providing it here for you:

Banoffee Cake

75g butter, softened
25g caster sugar
1 large egg
397g Nestle Carnation Caramel
225g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
3 ripe bananas, mashed
50g Cook’s Ingredients dark chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 180c (fan oven 160c). Grease and line a 1kg loaf tin. Beat butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy, then add the egg followed by the caramel. Mix flour and baking powder together and gradually fold into caramel mixture. Fold in the banana and ¾ of the chocolate chunks. Bake for 1 hour, covering loosely with foil for the last 15 minutes if it gets too dark. The cake is cooked if a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool slighty before removing from the tin.

Happy baking!
