    Forgive me if this exists in Britain, but I have discovered a most delicious cake down under in sunny (well not so at the moment) New Zealand!

    wait for it....

    Banana Cake! MMMMMMMM. its yummy!

    Banana and cake?! yeah ok, it doesn't sound so ridiculous now I read it but I thought I'd share it with you anyway!:biggrin:

    Can any tMPers recommend any other tasty food combinations that you just wouldn't think would go?!

    I believe I have had a slice of banana cake in the past and agree with your sentiments! Carrot cake is the one that always seems wrong to me even though its nice. Chips and cheese has become popular in the uk recently and of course there is the infamous battered mars bar but I have never tried one so I cant say if it is good or not! A personal favourite is plain crisps and salad cream :)

    I really like carrot cake. I cant get over cheese and chips, it just sounds vile, but to make it worse, people have begun to add garlic or chili sauce on to it - Yak

    In the Dominican Republic they have a speciality called Banana pie - it's lasange with banana on top rather than cheese. I did try it whilst I was there in January and it was quite nice!

    Cheese and chips is gorgeous! First time I had that was at the Manchester Commonwealth Games.

    One thing I like on my sarnies is Cheese and Jam. People think me really weird when they see me put them together. They refuse to try it even though I tell them it's nice and they can see me eating it.

    I'm not kidding. Cheese and chips is just a combination that really doesnt appeal to me.

    There was one combonation i had whilst in germany, cheese and toast with a pineapple ring and jam which was a bit odd, but alright, but a favourite snack that i like to have is a meat and potato pie in a warburtons muffin (or roll depending on what u call it), and one u should try as well is a pepperoni pzza with garlic butter on it is very tasty, a must try!

    Chips and cheese is very very nice with a bit of mayo or red sauce as well, but also if u have it with gravy it is very scrummy!

    normal mayo for me! im not a fan of garlic mayo. And of course cake is healthy with banana in, its like carrot cake, the carrots balance out the bad bit....

    Zeek, all your suggestions sound lovely except for the pinapple bit, im not a fan of pinapple on savoury things like pizza as wekll, it just seems wrong!

    Banana cake and carrot cake are both yummy, I have a friend who makes, wait for it ..... corguette cake and it is delicious. Lovely and moist - no need for too much sugar because corguettes are naturally sweet (like carrots) so it's reasonablly healthy - as cakes go.

    As for cheesy chips - mega yum. My local pub serves them as a side order.

    I was just going to mention that - I make courgette cake. Fed it to some builders we had working on the house and they kept coming back for more. Didn't like to tell them what was in it ;)

    I have had beetroot chocolate cake once it was very nice

    it doesnt taste of beetroot, my gf mum uses it instead of some other ingrediant, so it is heatly, and still taste chocolatey
