An all time favourite. The bananas look gross when you waiting for them to expire. But the wonderful treat that follows a Banana Loaf


125 grams of butter ( room temperature)
1 cup of brown sugar
2 eggs
3 super overripe large bananas, the browner the better( if its a bit small, use four bananas)
1 and 3/4 cups of cake flour
1 pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda/ baking soda

Banana Loaf


With an electric mixer, whisk butter and sugar until light and creamy, add the eggs on by one, still whisking, add the bananas one by one, still whisking – now add the flour, baking soda, and salt, now give it a quick whisk till well combined.
Now pour the batter in a greased loaf tin and bake in a preheated oven at 180 deg C for 55 -60 minutes or until your insert a toothpick or knife and it comes out clean.

Tip – when still warm, wrap in cling-wrap the banana loaf for 10 minutes, this will create a moist toffee-like crust.
