Banana cake

Cyclone Larry has destroyed the main banana plantations in Australia this week, and banana prices are predicted to rise from $2 to $8 per kilogram... so we'd better enjoy our bananas now! This recipe has been adapted from the Betty Crocker cookbook. I have been using this recipe for 30 years!

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas
1/3 cup water (or fruit juice)
1 cup plain white flour
2/3 cup plain wholemeal flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup walnuts

Preheat oven to 180C (350F) and oil a 9x5x3" loaf pan OR a bundt pan. Whiz sugar, oil, eggs, bananas, and water together, mixing well. Stir in remaining ingredients until just moistened. Bake ~55 min for loaf pan, or ~40 min for bundt pan.
