Banana Bread

Today I baked


Used my favourite, easy peasy, tried and true recipe (found HERE)

  • Melted low-fat dairy spread, to grease
  • 265g (1 3/4 cups) self-raising flour
  • 40g (1/4 cup) plain flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 140g (2/3 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) skim milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 50g butter, melted, cooled
  • 2 overripe medium bananas, mashed

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C.
Brush an 11 x 21cm (base measurement) loaf pan with melted dairy spread to lightly grease.
Line the base and 2 opposite sides with non-stick baking paper, allowing it to overhang.

Step 2

Sift the combined flours and cinnamon into a large bowl.
Stir in the sugar and make a well in the centre.
Place the milk, eggs, melted butter and banana in a medium bowl, and stir until well combined.
Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the surface.

Step 3

Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Remove from oven and set aside in the pan for 5 minutes.
Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Cut into slices to serve.


I also, while the oven was hot, made some choc chip cookies.
Almost all ready for back to school next week!

  2. I love banana bread but when I make it the kids don't go for it. Maybe I could add some icing on top ..... After reading your post I wanna give it another go!!! Dx

  3. Looks so tasty! We had banana bread this week as well! It doesn't make it any healthier, but for a sweeter bread, we add white chocolate chips and I dust the pan with sugar ... mmmm.
