Last week we had a few bananas left in the fruit basket and they were turning to the dark side of life. I’m quite a fussy eater as most of my friends know, I can’t bring myself to eating ripe/ over-ripe fruit. Luckily there is an upside to ripe bananas, BANANA BREAD!
I decided to make 3 loafs for my family and friends. It tasted amazing, I had one too many slices myself.
I quite enjoy bragging about my baking skills (not that it’s rocket science haha)
The recipe below will make 1 loaf, about 10 slices.
1 ½ Cup self-rising flour
1 Teaspoon baking soda
½ Teaspoon salt
¾ Teaspoon cinnamon
3 Medium bananas, mashed
8 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted & cooled
¾ Cup brown sugar
2 Large eggs, lightly beaten
1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
Mix the flour, salt, cinnamon & baking soda together in a bowl.
Mix the eggs, sugar, butter, bananas & vanilla essence together in a separate bowl.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the banana mix.
Spray the loaf pan with non-stick spray.
Bake for 55 minutes.
Smother slices with butter/ spread of your choice.
