Banana Bread

Being national baking day an all on Saturday, I thought I would kick things off with an old favourite of mines. 
I have been baking Banana Bread for as long as I can remember. My bad I tend to eat a whole Loafie too myself.. Thank goodness for my high metoblism or I would be screwed. 

Banana bread has to be one of the easiest things to make, you can't go far wrong with it as it is pretty full proof. Great for using up the brownish over ripe bananas and all pretty quick to whip up too. 

All you need is 5 ingredients.. It's that simple and prefect for the kids too help. 

I prefer to do this by hand.. Good for the arms. 

Makes: 2 loafs


6oz Butter, unsalted 
6oz Self Raising Flour, sifted 
6oz Caster Sugar 
3 eggs 
3-4 bananas, mushed up 
1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon 
1/4 teaspoon ground Nutmeg 

1 prepared Loaf Tin, either lined or well buttered and floured. 


1) preheat the oven to 180c. 
2) Cream the butter and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy. 
3) In another bowl whisk the eggs together before combining with the butter mixture. To stop the mixture from separating add in 2-3tablespoons of the flour into the bowl   
4) Once the eggs have been incorporated fold in the flour, just before the flours fully incorporated add in the bananas. 
5) Divide the mixture into the prepared tins and bake for 30-35minutes. Once cooked remove from the oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes before turning the loafs out to cool on a wire rack. 
6) Once the banana breads have cooled, they are ready to eat or gift.
