Vegan Banana Cake, with sultana and grappa

I had more mushy bananas so I made another banana cake, but vegan this time. The original version is here, I just changed the ingredients a little, removed the eggs and added sultana and grappa!

Vegan Banana Cake

2 tbsp sultana
1 small glass of grappa
5 ripe bananas
A few drops of lemon
100 g icing sugar + some for dusting
100 ml vegetable oil
200 g self rising flour

Soak the sultana in the grappa. Mush the bananas with the lemon juice, add the sugar and the other ingredients and beat well, then fold in the sultanas with the grappa. Grease a cake mould and pour the cake mixture in, bake at 180°C for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Reverse onto a serving plate and serve warm or cold. This cake is very moist and delicious and I think that I prefer the Vegan version to the non-Vegan. Great with tea or coffee, although it may not be as suitable for breakfast. (Don't worry about the grappa, you can barely taste it and the alcohol is all gone!)
