1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
5 ripe bananas
Juice and grated rind of one orange
1 saltspoonful mace
2 tablespoonfuls cream
2 Uneeda biscuits
Beat the butter to a cream and add the sugar; beat again and add the egg, unbeaten; continue beating until the mixture is light. Add sufficient flour to make a stiff dough - about one and a half cups. Roll into a thin sheet and line a square shallow baking-pan. Peel the bananas and chop them very fine. Put them in the crust and sprinkle them with two or three tablespoonfuls of extra sugar. Put over the rind and juice of the orange and two tablespoonfuls of extra butter cut into bits. Add the mace, the cream, and the crackers, grated. Bake in a moderate oven half an hour. Cut into squares and serve warm with milk.
