Creme Fraiche Banana Loaf Cake


Creme Fraiche Banana Loaf Cake

This turned out to be a fantastically moist banana loaf thanks to the crème fraiche. I also used salted butter for this recipe, rather than my normal unsalted and it gave the cake a lovely salted caramel undertone. One of the best banana loafs I've made and the perfect way to use up those pesky black banana’s that always get left at the bottom of the fruit bowl. 

Top tip: I guarantee it will be gobbled up quickly but if you do find yourself with a stale end cut, its also beautiful toasted under the grill, spread with butter and drizzled with honey. 

Have a lovely weekend. I'm looking forward to a potter in the garden (weather permitting), a walk on the beach with the family and lots of baking – including developing a Strawberry and Cream Traybake ready for Wimbledon. What cooking and baking plans have you got planned this weekend?
