Banana Loaf

After being cooped up in the house over my "summer" vacation due to the constant rain, I turned to indoor activities to keep me occupied which inevitably led me to baking again which hasn't been undertaken since the closing down of the weekly food gatherings. This is such a simple recipe to put together that can become a great dessert or snack depending what you do with it.


3 large ripe bananas
225g self-raising flour
175g Castor sugar
100g unsalted butter
2 eggs
2 tbsp syrup
Pinch of salt


Pre-heat the oven to 160C and grease a 450g (2lb) loaf tin. Peel then mash the bananas in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Beat vigourously until they are well combined.

You might also like to add other ingredients into the mix to make this recipe your own such as spices, walnuts or raisins to add flavour and texture.

Spoon the mixture into the loaf tin and bake in the oven for 75 minutes until risen and firm to the touch. Leave to cool for 15 minutes and then turn on a cooling rack.

This can be served cold or warm as pudding alongside some (double) cream to make it moreish.
Simple and delicious and a great way to use up any left-over bananas.

That's one of the easiest and tastiest meals you can make. We did a good job making that while not 100% sober. I guess we shouldn't bake at 2am, but it was absolutely fantastic tasting :D
