Go BANANAS... for Banana Bread!

You will need

  • 285g plain flour
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 110g butter
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 very ripe bananas
  • 85ml milk
  • 1tsp vanilla extract

Step 1

Lightly grease or use baking parchment to line a loaf tin and grab a grown-up to help preheat the oven at 180C/350F/Gas 4.

Step 2

Mix the butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, mash the bananas using a fork. They should be really gooey!

Step 4

Add the eggs, mashed bananas, milk and vanilla extract to the butter and sugar mixture and MIX, MIX, MIX!

Step 5

Fold in the flour and bicarbonate of soda. Grab a grown-up and pour the mixture into the loaf tin and bake for about an hour, or until it is well-risen and looks golden-brown.

Step 6

Remove the banana loaf from the oven, grab a grown-up and be careful the oven is HOT! Cool the loaf in the tin for a few minutes, and then turn it out onto a wire rack to cool completely before eating.
