There’s no better way to try your hand at easy baking than with this banana and blueberry cake recipe… 


225g self-raising flour

3/4 tsp baking powder

1 tsp nutmeg

75g caster sugar

300g/3 bananas

80ml semi skinned milk

80ml vegetable oil

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 punnet blueberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 / 160 fan.
  2. Line a cake tin with baking paper and lightly grease (we used low-cal butter cooking spray).
  3. Sieve the flour and baking powder over a large bowl. Add the sugar and nutmeg and stir to combine.
  4. In a separate bowl, add the bananas and mash with a fork.
  5. Once mashed, add the milk and vegetable oil to the banana mixture and crack in both eggs, using the fork to whisk all together.
  6. Add the vanilla essence to the wet mixture then slowly combine both bowls by thoroughly folding the wet mixture into the flour mixture.
  7. Once thoroughly combined, pour half of the mixture into the cake tin, followed by half of the blueberries, evenly spread.
  8. Pour over the remaining mix and finish off by sprinkling the rest of the blueberries on top.
  9. Bake in the oven for 55 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.

Serving suggestions:

This banana and blueberry cake has the texture of a giant muffin! Add a dollop of Greek yoghurt, couple of walnuts and a drizzle of honey to enhance each slice!
