Baby friendly (freeze it in chunks for lunch boxes), adult friendly (put a lock on the tin or it won’t last five minutes)….. Everyone loves this great breakfast cake that is good at any time of the day. It’s a super way to use bananas that are past their best. In fact black ones make the best cake!

For our last post before Christmas we are sharing a family secret – Granny Baxter’s Dundee cake. It’s a fantastic alternative to a christmas cake .
Like all good Scottish Grannies, Granny Baxter makes her Dundee cake in an Aga. That’s probably why ours is never as good as hers! This delicious cake will keep in a tin for a week (if it lasts that long) and freezes well.
This is the tried and trusted Claremont Christmas cake. Make it this weekend and ‘feed it’ with a few drops of brandy between this and Christmas. Ice it if you like (or if you’re lazy like us, then eat it as it is – Delicious!)
