While I was pregnant with my first baby, Gyvie, I discovered a thirst for baking. I have had a bit of a break but now I am back. I had a huge bunch of banana’s just sitting there begging to be made into banana bread. So…….I did.
I got my recipe from Kidspot a great website for all parents and parents to be. They have heaps of recipes that are quick and easy. I have used a few but this is my favourite.
All you need is;
- 2 cups plain flour (I use self raising flour instead of plains flour and baking powder)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ cup caster sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/3 cup (80mL) oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 ripe bananas, mashed
This is what you do;
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base of a loaf pan (mine is 11cm x 21cm).
Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a large bowl. Stir in the sugars. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, oil and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients with mashed banana and fold until just combined – do not overmix.
Place in the loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack and slice thickly.
You know how to eat it, so eat it. Delicious!
