I’ve heard this called ‘Banana Loaf’, ‘Banana Bread’ and ‘Banana Cake’. Whatever you call it, there’s no getting away from the fact that it’s very yummy. It’s very easy to make which makes it perfect for doing with children and freezes well, meaning you can make it well in advance.
6oz Sugar (can be any kind. I use the Demerara sugar as I like the flavour)
8oz Self Raising Flour
2 large or 3 medium Banana’s (it’s best to use very ripe, almost brown banana’s)
Pre-heat your oven to 180oC
Mash the banana’s in a bowl with a sturdy fork and then put to one side.
In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar.
Put it in a loaf tin. If you aren’t using a silicone loaf tin like I am here, you will need to line your tin. I like my silicone tin as, as long as you are careful, you can ease it out without needing to line it. It’s worth noting that my tin won’t give you the perfect loaf shape as the sides move slightly.
