Branches of Waitrose seem to be springing up all over the place. The latest one I’ve noticed is in the well-heeled area of Jesmond in Newcastle. We were up there over Easter and I couldn’t resist a little snoop inside the gleaming store.
While I was browsing around the shelves, I picked up a recipe card for these gorgeous tea-time treats as i’m always in the market for new banana cake ideas.
It has an obscene amount of honey in it – but the result is a gloriously moist cake with a sticky almond-studded crust.
I love that it’s very thin, so it only takes half an hour to cook, unlike the hour that a denser loaf cake takes. It also means you can just have a tiny slice with a cuppa and not feel too bad about it.
You can find the recipe here on the Waitrose website, I urge you to try it… really… it’s life improving!
