I have tried and failed many-a-time with Banana bread, you would think it would be super easy to get right, “shove it all in a mixer and cook” they said, “it’s easy they said” but i’ve always struggled with consistency, its either too soggy, too tasteless or just burns to a crisp, however I won’t be defeated by the bloody stuff and after some persistence and (ALOT) of swearing I think were onto a winner with this recipe and nailed the crispy edge and moist (ewww hate that word but the thesaurus wasn’t helping me out today!) inside.
: YOU WILL NEED :
. 4 Ripe Bananas
. 1 Cup White Sugar
. 2 Eggs
. 1 1/2 Cups Plain Flour
. 1/2 TSP Baking Powder
. 1/2 Cup Of Melted Butter
. 1 TSP Vanilla Paste
1. Preheat oven to 160(Fan), Add Sugar and Melted Butter into a mixer and cream together until you get a paste.
2. Break the Bananas into chunks and add to your paste, then add the eggs and Vanilla Paste, mix together well.
3. In another bowl add your flour and baking powder and stir together, then sieve into your wet mixture.
4. Pour mixture into a lined or greased loaf pan and bake for 60 minutes (this sounds like a long time but this was the gamechanger and where I think I was going wrong previously).
Allow to cool completely (or if you like it filthy and squidgy then be my guest and eat it warm)
Grab a cuppa and enjoy (!)
