Banana Bread

Banana bread is one of the easiest cakes to make and is a great way of using up bananas that could otherwise be facing the bin.

All you need to whip up this family favourite is:

150g self raising flour
165g caster sugar (white or golden)
1 egg
3 very ripe bananas

Sift the flour into a mixing bowl, add in the sugar and the egg.

In a separate bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until smooth and add that to the other ingredients.

Simply mix with a wooden spoon until the batter is combined and pour into a lined loaf tin. I always line my loaf tins, as it saves on the washing up!

Pop into a pre-heated oven at 180C for around an hour. Check with a skewer and it if comes out clean, the cake is cooked.

Allow to cool for a couple of minutes, before turning out on to a wire rack to cook complete and then enjoy with a cuppa.

As an alternative, you could stir through a handful of chopped nuts or chocolate chips or even a couple of spoonfuls’ of honey or peanut butter to jazz up the cake.
