Banana Loaf

As it was National Banana Bread Day yesterday, I thought it was the perfect excuse to make a banana loaf.

This recipe never fails, it’s so simple yet delicious and great for using up any ripe bananas.


4oz margarine

6oz caster sugar

6oz self-raising flour

1 ripe mashed banana (use two if they are small bananas)

2 beaten eggs


Step 1: Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan oven. Line and lightly grease a loaf tin.

Step 2: Cream together the margarine and sugar. Mix in the beaten egg and mashed banana,  then fold in the flour.

Step 3: Put the batter into the loaf tin and bake for 1 hour.

Step 4: Take out the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.

Great served just warm out of the oven. Keeps fresh for a few days (that’s if it lasts that long).
