Banana and Sultana Cake
Banana and Sultana Cake is a firm favourite from my archive of diet books. This one is from my Flat Stomach Plan, published in 1994. So easy to make and made without adding any fat. Ripe bananas can often be purchased cheaply and it is a great way to use up bananas that are getting a bit too ripe. Suitable for freezing
