Banana Bread

Recipe and Images from Yasmin

This bread is something that I look forward to in the mornings. I will wake up and have two slices of banana bread for breakfast. It is truly something delicious and simple. In my experience it tastes best with margarine spread over one side and then heated for 30 seconds in the microwave. It tastes really nice heated and in the morning. I usually make it the night before and serve it in the morning. Another tip which makes this recipe really useful is that the bananas can be used (and is preferably used) when they are really ripened. This means that the bananas are bad to eat, they are all bruised and squishy - perfect for making banana bread. Banana bread is a simple and convenient way to use bananas that have not been eaten when they are most fresh.

  • 125g butter
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp bi-carb soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and bananas. Sift in dry ingredients and stir into mixture. Bake at moderate temperature (150'C fan-forced) in loaf tin for 45-60 minutes (it is better to cook for a longer time at a lower temperature).
