once the first stage of ingredients are chopped/mashed/beaten/mixed in a bowl, and set aside, start to make the cakey part...
In a large mixing bowl : beat the butter until smooth and creamy
Add the sugar and beat with the butter until even smoother Crack the two eggs into this, one at a time and beat again, keep it all nice and smooth Sift the flour, baking powder and bicarb soda - into this mixture, but half at a time, and fold in no beating, conserve the airiness and use cutting motions.
Add a splash of soya milk if the mixture is a bit stiff.
Pour the mixture into 2 greased and lined 21cm tins. Bake in the oven at 180ºC for a total time of 35/40 mins - swap positions after 15/18 mins but be swift. you don't want the ship to sink!
After the baking, turn out to cool and prepare the middle splodge... You need a bowl and into that, cream the butter by beating it well, add the icing sugar, no need to beat, and the vanilla. lastly the walnuts. if you Want it to be extra banana-ry, add 1 more banana, mashed up very smoothly with a fork or something.
Make sure the cake is cool before making a sandwich out of it. yeA. lush! Enjoy with a mug of chai!
