    6 Tips for the Perfect Banana Cake 

    • Don’t keep opening the oven when the banana cake is baking – this will dry it out and make it sink.
    • As soon as a skewer comes out clean, you can take it out of the oven and let it cool.
    • To add a bit of extra flavour, try rich, sweet spices like cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger.
    • If you’re feeling fancy, you can warm up some golden syrup and make some small holes in the top of the banana cake, and pour it over for an extra indulgent, moist banana cake
    • Eat fresh – this will allow the gooey, moist nature of banana bread to shine.
    • Use very ripe bananas because they are much sweeter and softer which will make your cake sweet and moist.
