Boredom Busting Banana Bread Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium bananas, 3 for mashing, 1 for the top
  • 220g plain wholemeal flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 240g caster sugar or soft brown sugar
  • 125g softened butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract/paste
  • Sugar to top 

Inspired by Lord Lucy’s Banana Bread Recipe with a few changes due to lack of store cupboard items. 

Instructions:

  1. Mash 3 of the bananas and set to one side ready to fold into your mixture later. 
  2. Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large mixing bowl. 
  3. In a separate bowl, cream your softened butter with the sugar and then add the eggs 1 by 1 to the mixture. 
  4. Once all of the wet ingredients are combined and smooth, slowly fold in the flour mixture – try not to over mix it. 
  5. Take your mashed banana and carefully blend this into the large mixing bowl along with your vanilla extract. 
  6. Tip the mix into a lined loaf tin or ovenproof dish of your choice and decorate with the remaining banana peeled and sliced lengthways, sink into the mix. 
  7. Bake at 165 degrees c for approximately 1hr. 
  8. Take out of the oven once golden and cooked through, allow to cool and then enjoy with a cup of tea in front of your favourite boxset.
