The banana bread is easy to make and remember, you pretty much needs 120g of each ingredients and some bananas. It also works well as a packed lunch addition.. you can cut up and freeze the slices so they’re ready each morning.
This Banana Bread recipe is really simple to make. To make it you just need a pan, a bowl and a loaf tin and any mixing is with a fork. In a nutshell:
- You mash the banana
- Melt the butter and sugar
- Then throw everything into a bowl and mix together.
Give it a go, it’s perfect with a coffee or a glass of milk or wrapped up for a breaktime snack.
You can make it in a loaf tin or a square tray, the latter just needs 10 mins less in the oven and if you’ve got a spare banana slice and arrange it on the top before baking.
- 3 ripe bananas
- 120g unsalted butter
- 120g dark brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 120g plain flour
- 120g jumbo oats
- 120g sultanas
- Small saucepan
- Mixing bowl
- Loaf tin, about 20cm square or a loaf tin
- Turn on the oven at 180c.
- Next grease the tin and line with a strip of parchment.
- Melt the butter and sugar in a pan on a medium heat. You need to keep an eye on it, but you can pretty much leave it to melt by itself.
- While it’s melting, peel and mash the bananas with a fork in the bowl.
- Add all other ingredients to the bowl and mix together, then once it’s melted add the butter/sugar mix.
- Pour mixture into the tin and bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
- After 40 minutes check how the loaf is cooking, if the top of the loaf is getting a bit too dark, place some foil over the top.
- If you’re using a square tin, check it after 40 minutes and it should be ready.
- Then check the loaf again after the full 50 minutes and check with a skewer.
- Leave to cool on a rack
My oven is a fan oven and the bread cooks pretty consistently in 50 minutes, but it may need 5-10 minutes longer.
