Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease a 20cm round (base) cake pan. Line base and side with baking paper.
  2. Place butter, SPLENDA®, banana, eggs, milk and vanilla in the bowl of a food processor. Process for 2 minutes or until combined.
  3. Add flour and bicarbonate of soda and process until just combined. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Smooth top. Bake for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Stand cake in pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
