- Place crème caramels in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Mash remaining bananas in a medium bowl. Using electric beaters, beat eggs and sugar in a medium bowl for 3–5 minutes or until thick and pale. Sift f lour over egg mixture and gently fold in with crème caramel mixture, mashed banana and oil.
- Spoon mixture into prepared tin. Bake for 50–55 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Stand cake in tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
- Serve warm cake with a scoop of banana ice-cream.
Cover the surface of the ice-cream with a layer of plastic wrap to stop ice crystals forming.
