Quick and easy

“Banana bread is a type of bread made from mashed bananas. It is often a moist, sweet, cake like quick bread; however there are some banana bread recipes that are traditional-style raised breads.”

Growing up I was never a sweet tooth kind of person, but i quickly caught up with the trend. I’ve never either been much of a fan in eating banana’s but when it’s mixed into a sweet bread like banana bread, then that’s another story. It’s so easy to make, not super sweet in taste and is amazing with a cup of tea. When first moving to Perth at 18, all the cafes would serve the banana bread and i’d see customers always salivating over them and I always  looked at them and thought “it looks good” but wouldn’t think more about it.  Since Covid19 lockdown, this has basically become a weekly baking treat.

You will need:

113g unsalted butter
150g brown sugar
2 eggs
4 bananas
192g self raisin flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Pre-measure all the ingredients and place them in small individual bowls. Start by melting the butter, crack the eggs and lightly beat them, mash the banana, sieve the flour. In a big metal bowl, mix the melted butter, sugar, banana mash and eggs till smooth. Gradually add the flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla extract. Line your baking tray with baking paper and gently transfer the banana batter. Slice a banana in half and place it on top of the batter for decoration. Bake for 20mins in 180degrees, then place an aluminium foil over the banana bread to prevent it from burning. Bake for a further 15mins if needed. When finished, leave to cool before slicing.
