It’s that time of year again when I’m craving comfort foods and for me that means a good loaf of banana bread. Here’s my recipe for the best banana bread!
You Will Need:
- 1 Cup Of Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 3 Ripe Bananas
- 1/3 Cup Of Butter
- 1.5 Cups Of Plain Flour
- Vanilla Flavouring
- Baking Soda
- Loaf Tin
Start by measuring your ingredients then preheating the oven to 175°C. Next grease the loaf tin with a small amount of butter by placing the butter on a paper towel and wiping it round the sides of the tin.
Peel your bananas before placing them in a bowl and mashing them up using a fork.
Place your butter in the microwave for sixty seconds then pour it in with the mashed bananas and mix together. Now add a teaspoon of baking soda and a pinch of salt. Make sure these are mixed in well too.
Beat the egg with a fork in a separate bowl.
Now add your sugar and vanilla flavouring, followed by the egg to the main bowl, continually mixing it all – if you’re doing it by hand like I was your arms probably getting a really good workout right about now!
Add in the flour a bit at a time until it’s all in and well mixed so there are no lumps.
If you want to add anything extra in, for example, chocolate chips or walnuts – now is the time to do it.
Carefully pour the mixture into your greased loaf tin and smooth the top over with a spatula. Place it in the oven for about fifty minutes or so until a skewer can be poked in the middle and comes out clean. The cooking time will vary depending on your ovens efficiency so I would check five minutes either side.
Once done take it out the oven and leave it to cool completely on a wire rack.
Then there you have it – the best banana bread. Enjoy!
