What better way to start a Monday than by making banana bread?
The boys have started going to school full time from this week. It has left the house feeling very quiet and I am missing them terribly.
After I dropped them at school yesterday morning, I was faced with a huge to do list. So rather than face the to do list head on, I made banana bread. As you do….
In my defence I had two over ripe bananas to use. I didn’t to waste them!
So I put on some music and set about making the house smell yummy!
What you need:
- A bread loaf tin lined with baking paper
- Flour (plain) – 200g
- Bicarb of Soda – 1/2 teaspoon
- Baking Powder – 1 teaspoon
- Caster Sugar – 115g
- Butter (unsalted) – 60g
- Chocolate Chips – Small Bag (optional)
- Bananas (ripe) – 2
- Egg – 1
- Milk – 1 tablespoon
How to make Banana Bread
Preheat the oven to 180 C
If you have tried any of my other recipes, I tend to go for simple and easy bakes. Something which can be rustled up quickly and easily. This recipe is no different..
Firstly, sieve the flour, bicarb and baking powder into a large mixing bowl.
Then add the sugar and butter and rub the mixture together. It will start to resemble breadcrumbs.
Then mash up the banana and mix this in, along with the milk and egg.
If you are adding the chocolate chips then add this in at the end.
Pour the mixture into the loaf tin, then cook in the oven for around 40 minutes.
Et Voila! Easy banana bread, made easily. Better put the kettle on….
