Banana Bread



Melted butter – 175 gms

Self-Raising flour: 1 & 3/4 cups

Plain flour: ¼ cup

Ground cinnamon: 1 tsp

Brown Sugar: 2/3 cup, firmly packed

Large ripe bananas: 3, mashed

Eggs: 2, lightly whisked

Milk: ½ cup


Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush a loaf pan very lightly with melted butter.

Line the base and 2 opposite sides with non-stick baking paper, allowing it to overhang.

Sift the flours and cinnamon into a large bowl.

Stir in the sugar and make a well in the centre.

Add mashed bananas in a medium bowl.

Add the eggs, milk, melted butter, and stir till well combined.

Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the surface, lightly tapping it, in order to remove the bubbles.

Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or the inserted skewer (into the centre) comes out clean.

Remove from oven and set aside in the pan for 5 minutes.

Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into slices to serve.

NOTE: You can slice them and freeze too. It is generally served warm. You can toast in a grill for better taste.
