Christmas Banana Bread Recipe

Before and After!
  • 285g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 110g butter plus extra for greasing loaf tin
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3-4 ripe bananas (I used 3)
  • 85 ml milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
The fun part:
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4
  2. Sieve in flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl
  3. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy in a separate bow. To cream means basically use a mixer.
  4. Add eggs, banana, milk and vanilla to the butter and sugar. Mix well. Then add to the flour mixture and fold in well, basically mix it all up with a wooden spoon until it has a smooth consistency
  5. Grease a loaf tin, spoon the mixture in and bang it in the oven until it is golden brown and well risen.
Estimated baking time: 1 hour
Remove from oven, place on wire rack to cool before turning it out, slicing it up and digging in!
You can swap out the milk for some orange juice, 175 ml.
To make it festive and Christmassy, sieve in some nutmeg and cinnamon with the flour.
Serve with honey, butter or extra bananas!
Let me know how you get on, happy baking!
