Classic Bakes: Banana Loaf

I have good intentions towards fruit. I do. We always buy it when we do our food shopping. I plan having it on cereal, and making fruit salads. This doesn't always happen. And for the times when you're left with over-ripe bananas, there's a saving grace in banana loaf!

It's something I've enjoyed many a time but for some reason haven't ever made myself. I've given it a go tonight. It's cooling at the moment and smells DELICIOUS!

Fresh out of the oven and smelling good!

You will need:

  • 115g butter
  • 170g caster sugar
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 large/3 medium bananas
  • **OPTIONAL EXTRAS** 115g of walnuts or 100g of chocolate chunks
To make:

Pre-heat the oven to 180°c and grease and line a 2lb loaf tin

Mash the bananas in their own bowl and keep to one side

In your mixing bowl, cream together your butter and sugar. Once it is nice and fluffy add the eggs and mix

Mix in the bananas (and walnuts or chocolate if you're using either) and then stir in the flour

Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and put in the oven

Bake for 40 minutes then turn the oven down to 150°c and bake for an additional 30 minutes
