Weekend activities - Banana Bread

Voila my baking result in years

Guilt free enjoyment

Washing up as you go a long

My baking stuff

My baking view

Ingredients (serves 8)

  • 1 3/4 cups (260g) plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2/3 firmly packed cup (150g) dark brown sugar
  • 3 large over-ripe bananas
  • 2 large eggs, lightly whisked
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g unsalted butter, melted, cooled

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C. Lightly grease an 11cm x 22cm loaf pan and line base and 2 long sides with a sheet of baking paper, leaving 2cm overhanging.
  2. Sift flour, cinnamon, baking powder, soda and 1/2 teaspoon salt into a bowl with the brown sugar, then add the nuts.
  3. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas with a fork or potato masher, then stir in the eggs, vanilla extract and cooled melted butter. Using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until they're just combined - don't overmix.
  4. Scrape cake batter into prepared pan. Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour or until golden brown and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool the loaf in pan 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Cut into 8-10 slices - and enjoy with a cup of chai :)
