    Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4.

    Line the bottom of the loaf tin with some non-stick baking parchment and grease the sides of the tin.

    Put the softened butter and the sugar into a large bowl with the hot tea and whisk well.

    Mash the bananas and add to the mix.

    Crack the egg into another bowl, whisk well and then add to the mix.  

    Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix well.

    Add the chopped walnuts and cinnamon and mix well.

    Pour the mix into the cake tin and bake in the oven for 55 minutes. Test with a wooden skewer – if it comes out clean the cake is done.
