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!

Note:
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.
