Dig out that old tube cake tin your grandmother left you and don’t let this incredibly easy, wonderfully moist, deliciously sweet favourite die out. If you don’t have a tube tin, or you can’t find the lids for both ends (a common problem), use a 25 cm by 10 cm (10 in by 4 in) loaf tin. If you don’t have a ripe banana, add a tablespoon of golden syrup for extra moistness.
