Banana Loaf 🍌

I don’t like to blow my own trumpet, but I do make a really delicious banana loaf. They don’t last very long in my house as everyone loves it as a snack. Even my grandma, whose 89 with diabetes and really shouldn’t be eating it, eats it faster than most. 

It’s sort of a mix between banana bread and a drizzle cake. Every time I try to bake banana bread it goes all mushy and doesn’t set properly. But this recipe is so simple and easy. 

So here’s the recipe that I use: 

Ingredients –

140g of butter 

140g of caster sugar

2 large eggs (beaten!)

140g of self-raising flour

1 tsp of baking powder

2 very ripe bananas (mashed!)

50g of icing sugar

And if you want to, a handful dried banana chips, for decoration! (I don’t like banana chips for some reason)

Method – 

Heat your oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Butter a 2lb loaf tin and line the base and sides with baking parchment. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then slowly add the eggs with a little flour. Fold in the remaining flour, baking powder and bananas. Pour into the tin and bake for about 30 mins until a skewer comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then remove to a wire rack.

After, mix the icing sugar with 2-3 tsp water to make a runny icing. Drizzle the icing across the top of the cake and decorate with banana chips.

The smell that will come from your kitchen will make you hungry for banana bread even if you’ve just eaten. And, obviously, it tastes so so good!

I take my slice for my breakfast at work and it fills me up for hours. so yummy!
