How To Make Banana Bread

Banana Bread Recipe

PREP TIME: 15 mins

BAKE TIME: 50 mins

LEVEL: easy

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/ Fan Oven 160°C/ Gas Mark 4
  2. Grease a medium loaf tin
  3. Cream the sugar and the butter in a bowl with a hand-held mixer until pale and fluffy
  4. Add in one egg and sieve a little flour and mix through with mixer, repeat with the other egg and the rest of flour and add baking soda
  5. Mix until everything is smooth
  6. Peel the bananas and mash with a fork
  7. Add mashed bananas and vanilla extract to the bowl with the other ingredients and mix gently
  8. Pour the mix into a well-greased loaf tin and place in the oven for approximately 50 minutes
  9. After 25 minutes, you may want to cover with tinfoil to stop the top browning too much (only do this step if necessary)
  10. To check the bread is ready, insert a metal skewer into the centre of the loaf. If the skewer comes out clean, your bread is ready. If not, leave in the oven for a further few minutes, checking at regular intervals
  11. Remove the loaf from the tin and leave on a wire rack to cool
  12. Cut yourself a slice & enjoy while still slightly warm!

 TOP TIP: Keep in mind, you can add some chocolate chips or, if you’re looking for a healthier option, you can also add sultanas! However, if you follow the basics below, you can be sure that you won’t go wrong!
