Banana Bread

RECIPE

Banana BreadI was surfing around recipes the other day, looking at what recipes were popular in search, when I came across the ABC News page for “The Top 10 Recipes You Searched for This Year” (2014) and there at number three was the Banana Bread recipe. Wow! A top 10 recipe and I had never made it!

I wasn't sure what Banana Bread was and the name is not exactly a give away, other than it contains bananas. So I looked at a few recipes, decided what I might like and came up with this, but it is not a bread it is a cake.

Tested on the family and friends it is a winner, a good cake to have on hand for when visitors come calling. A coffee or tea with a slice of Banana Bread makes for a good welcoming snack.

Ingredients

275g over ripe Bananas, mashed
2 medium Eggs
150g Caster Sugar
150g softened Butter
100g roughly chopped walnuts (optional)
300g Self Raising Flour
A Pinch of Salt

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180C°, 350°F or Gas mark 4.

  • Lightly grease a 9 inch x 4 inch loaf tin, lining the base with baking paper.

  • Place the peeled bananas in a large mixing bowl and mash well. (A large spoon works well.)

  • Add the eggs, sugar and butter and beat together with an electric mixer until well blended.

  • Add the Walnuts and beat until well distributed through mixture.

  • Add the flour and salt and fold in with a spatula until just mixed. Do not over-mix.

  • Pour mixture into prepared tin and bake for 55 to 60 minutes, until a wooden toothpick or knife inserted into centre of the loaf comes out clean.

  • Allow to cool in the tin for about 10 minutes, before turning out onto a wire rack. Allow to cool completely.
