- Ready In : 1:10 h
- 3-4 ripe bananas
- 100g caster sugar
- 40g butter
- 150g self raising flower
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
Line a loaf tin or a small tin with greaseproof paper. Pre-heat the oven to 175 degrees.
Mash the bananas, then stir in the melted butter. Mix in sugar, eggs and vanilla essence.
Sprinkle the flour and baking powder over the wet mix and stir in.
Pour into tin and bake in the centre of the oven for 1 hour or until firm to the touch. If the cake starts to burn on top, cover it with foil for the rest of the bake.
Cool the cake in the tin. Banana bread keeps well for a few days in an airtight container.
