Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    I doubled the recipe to make 24 sizeable cupcakes. Baking time was around 23-25 minutes. The cupcakes were fairly typical banana cakes: moist, sturdy texture, not too sweet, so perfect with frosting. I topped most of them with chocolate frosting from another recipe, plus a few with peanut butter-cream cheese frosting, and both were great with these.

    The cake texture was nice but I thought the banana flavour had too much competition from the lemon in the cake and the almond flavouring in the frosting.

    Have made several times already, good way to use up overripe bananas. Excellent with the white chocolate frosting as suggested.
