Banana Bread

So we've tried a few different banana bread recipes but this is by far the best one. The cake is so moist on the inside and its delicious when its still warm.

You'll need
  • 125g butter
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 190g self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg (at room temp)
  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 60ml milk

Mash up the bananas in a large bowl.
Melt the butter, sugar and vanilla in a sauce pan then add to the bananas and mix well with a wooden spoon. Beat in the egg, milk and flour.
Pour the mix into a greased loaf tin and bake at 180c for about half an hour (till the skewer comes out clean).

*I find that the top tends to brown alot quicker than the inside cooks. Granted that this could be cause my oven is on its last legs but if this happens to you too, what i do is cover over the top with greaseproof paper and it stops the top burning while the middle cooks.


  1. It looks delicious! Do you take off the greaseproof paper at the end or when it is still cooking un the oven?

    1. What i do is put it in the oven and bake for about 20 min then have a look and see the colour of the top. If its getting really browned but the skewer comes out with raw mix on then i just place a sheet of greaseproof paper over the top of the loaf tin for the last 10 min. It stops the top burning while the inside cooks.

      Check at 30min to make sure the skewer is clean and take out the oven and remove the greaseproof paper from the top so it doesnt sweat and make the bread all wet.

    2. You might not need it though. The loaf i made today didnt need a cover ... i think its just my oven cause its on its road out but i thought id add that in just incase it happens to others :)

    3. Thank you! I will have to buy some bananas and let them for a few days I guess in order to get my very ripe bananas ;)

    4. We buy a couple more than i think we need cause Agent M has a serious Banana addiction. Best wait till they look like brown with black spots. The riper the better :)

  2. I LOVE some banana bread! #Yummy
