Yippee! I’ve got mouldy bananas!

Ok so maybe not something I should be bragging about, having mouldy food in the house.  Under normal circumstances it’s not an exciting event, except when it comes to bananas as it means I can make banana bread, one of our family favourites!

banana bread

To make your own delicious banana loaves, this is the recipe:

200g plain flour

2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

75g butter or margarine

115g caster sugar

3 bananas, mashed

2 eggs, beaten

1.  Pre-heat oven to 180/gas mark 4

2. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon into a bowl

3.  In another bowl mix the butter/margarine with the sugar until light and fluffy

4.  Add mashed bananas and eggs to sugar/margarine and mix well

5.  Add to the dry ingredients and mix quickly and evenly

6.  If making one large loaf it will take around 50-60 minutes to cook, halve this time if making small loaves or muffins

I have topped mine this time with a brown sugar glaze and two of them with chopped nuts but it tastes just as good plain.

It is a really versatile recipe and also makes great banana muffins.  I have also made it before adding raisins or chocolate.

Let me know what you think if you try it out! 🙂
