The Ultimate Banana Cake (vegan friendly) (Thanks to Ruth for this.)

Serves 8

6 ripe bananas
1/2 cup dairy-free margarine
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup soya milk (optional)
Dash of cinnamon

1) Peel and mash bananas
2) In a separate bowl, mix the flour and margarine until you get a ‘powdery’ texture
3) Add the sugar, along with the soya milk and cinnamon
4) Mix in the mashed bananas
5) Pour the mixture into a lightly oiled tin (use baking paper to ‘oil’ the tin with margarine)
6) Bake at 200 degrees C for 45-60 minutes (or until you can stick a fork in the middle without mixture sticking to it!)

Stewed Rhubarb
(Thanks to Jon for this one)

As much rhubarb as you can find/ want to stew (10 sticks will serve around 4 people)

1) Chop the rhubarb into chunks
2) Add the rhubarb to a pan, and simmer on a low heat for 15-20 minutes (with a bit of sugar to draw the water out). Add more sugar to taste (depending on how sweet you like it)
3)  Et Voila, stewed rhubarb!

You can stew loads of different kinds of fruit (pears and apples also work well). It’s a good way of using up fruit which is past its best, but still too good to throw away.
