Banana Bread


It’s days like this (wind & rain) that you need banana bread.  Nothing beats the smell of the freshly cooked bread.  This recipe produces a really moist loaf that can be served cold, warm or toasted with or without butter.  Or for indulgence with mascarpone cheese and honey!!


1 3/4 cups of SR flour

1/4 cup of plain flour

1 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup milk (I use full cream)

2 eggs

60 grams butter melted

2 overripe bananas mashed until smooth

rolled oats to sprinkle


Preheat oven to 180°C.  Lightly grease loaf tin with canola oil spray.

Sift flours into large bowl, add cinnamon and sugar.  Stir until well combined, make a well in the centre.

In another bowl mix banana, milk, melted butter and lightly whisked eggs.

Pour banana mixture into flour mixture and mix lightly until just combined.

Pour mixture into loaf tin, spray with small amount of oil spray then sprinkle with oats, cook for approx 40 minutes or until golden and firm to touch.

Allow to cool slightly (if you can!!) then slice and enjoy.
