Banana Bread

I’ve got a couple of recipes that I want to try which require bananas… but this recipe is just so yummy that I never get around to trying them! Serves about 10 people – cut off a slice and heat up in the microwave or toaster (if it’s firm enough) if you’re not eating it straight out of the oven.

100g butter

175g caster sugar

2 large eggs

2 ripe bananas, mashed

225g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 tbsp milk

  1. Beat all ingredients until well blended (about 2 minutes).
  2. Lightly grease a 900g (2lb) loaf tin, and line with baking parchment.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the tin and smooth the surface.
  4. Bake in an oven pre-heated to 180oC/Fan 160oC for about one hour, until well-risen and golden, and a toothpick put in centre comes out clean. If it’s browning too quickly (check after half an hour), then cover with silver foil.
  5. Leave to cool in tin for a few minutes, then turn out, peel off the parchment, and finish cooling on a wire rack.

  1. I made this, and it does taste wonderful. I does appear to be quite a dry recipe, so I put chocolate buttercream in the middle – I think it would probably taste amazing with sultanas as well. xxx

    1. Ooh, that’s funny, it always came out very gooey for me! Funny what a difference different ovens can make… Chocolate buttercream sounds an interesting addition!
