Between Lowen, Rory and their friends who were round to play, this Banana and Maple Syrup Loaf Cake was gone in one afternoon. Notice that I've use Maple Syrup AGAIN! I can't get enough of the stuff and have been putting it in and on everything I possibly can in the last few weeks.
I had some samples of Clarkes Maple Syrup sent to me a while ago and for this cake I used their vanilla maple syrup. It gave the cake a wonderful depth of flavour but ordinary maple syrup would be fine ...or even golden syrup. You could also add in a handful of chocolate chips or some nuts too but my kids like it plain so I left it without any extra adornments.
This turned out to be the perfect baked treat for a sunny half term afternoon in the garden, with a cold glass of milk alongside. Yum was the verdict from the kids.
