Ingredients (serves 8):


1. Use a 23cm loose-bottomed cake tin, and line with greaseproof paper to prevent the cake sticking.

2. Pre-heat the oven to 170C/gas mark 3.

3. Mix together the flour, salt and baking powder.

4. In another bowl, mash the bananas and then add the yoghurt. In a third large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, add two of the eggs - one at a time - and to stop the mixture curdling, add a tablespoon or two of the flour blend. Add the remaining egg - it should look thick and creamy.

5. Stir in the bananas and yoghurt, then the apricots.

6. Then, using a large metal spoon, gently fold in the flour, using deep, slow movement.

7. Transfer your batter into the cake tin and bake for 1 hr and 15 minutes.

8. To check your cake is ready, push a long skewer into its middle - it should come out clean.

9. Leave the cake to stand for 20 minutes, then transfer to a plate.

10. It is delicious served warm with double cream or crème fraiche.
