Banana Bread

banana bread 01

I’m not a particular fan of banana as a fruit and often, I had to think of ideas of using raw ingredients to create something that I might like. Banana Bread, nothing too “unusual”, quite simple to make and can definitely be a easy “grab” breakfast choice!

There’s plenty of banana bread recipes out there, and anyone of them could definitely be an achievable goal! And like many other bloggers, I’ve used a numerous of recipes that I can find. After so many trials of adding and reducing different ingredients, this recipe is my ‘favourite choice’.

You’ll need (makes 12 slices):

  • 265 grams self-raising flour (sifted)
  • 40 grams plain flour (sifted)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon sugar
  • 140g brown sugar (sifted)
  • Vegetable Oil spray, to grease
  • 130ml skim milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 35g butter, melted and cooled
  • 4 overripe large bananas, mashed
  • Dairy spread, to serve(optional)

How to?

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush an 11 x 21cm loaf pan with oil spray.
  2. Combine flours and cinnamon sugars into a large bowl. Stir in the brown sugar.
  3. Combine milk, egg, butter and banana into another bowl until well combined.
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and fold until it forms into a gooey texture. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the surface with a spoon.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from the over and set aside in the pan for 5 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack to cool until it is warm enough to serve.
  6. Cut into slice and serve with dairy spread.

  • You can increase to 5 mash bananas if you wish to have a “wetter” texture. The current recipes still keeps the banana bread in a moist texture for 3 days in a airtight container. Otherwise, wrap the slices in glad wrap and freeze it – up to 1 month. Serve toasted.

    This is a great recipe, thanks. I have made it a couple of times now and we enjoy eating it. It’s also fun to make with my three year old. The recipe doesn’t mention what to actually do with the bananas though.
