Bitchin' Banana Cake

My friend Hayley and I made the most amazing banana cake a few days ago. I can't believe it actually worked because we were missing some ingredients, so we had to improvise haha.
We mixed together: 
2 overipe bananas 
170g sugar 
170g butter
170g flour (was supposed to be self raising but we didn't have any)
We discovered that baking powder can be added to plain flour to the same effect - problem solved! 
But we didn't have any baking powder.
So we added about quarter of a teaspoon baking soda and half a teaspoon cream of tartar.
These were combined and the mixture was poured into a greased loaf tin. We baked this for about 40 minutes or so at 160 degrees celsius. Sorry for the dodgy quality photos: 

...and then we covered it with Cadbury Philadelphia 
It was great!
