Banana Bread

Working tips to help, I separate everything into 3 bowls. Mashed bananas in one, flour, cinnamon and baking powder in another, and the butter and sugar mixture in a third larger bowl. I usually pre beat the eggs in a glass jug.


  • 1 ½ cups plain flour
  • ½ cup fine sugar
  • ½ cup soft butter
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 3 large soft bananas, squished
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbs baking powder


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 or gas mark5, and grease and line a loaf tin.
  2. Blend the butter and sugar in a large bowl till white and fluff.
  3. Slowly add all the other ingredients till thoroughly blended, make sure not to over work the mixture.
  4. Turn the mixture out into the lined loaf tin, and bake for 1 hour or till golden brown on top and firm to the touch.
  5. Remove from tin and let stand on wire rack to cool.
