Banana bread is the most genius recipe - it's not only delicious, but also the ultimate way to turn a bunch of over-ripe bananas into the sweetest treat!



Total time

  • 4 very ripe bananas
  • 2 medium eggs (or switch for 1 banana)
  • 120 g self-raising flour  (switch for GF alternative as required)
  • 100 g granulated sugar
  • 60 g butter (or margarine)

  2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas.
  3. Add the eggs (if using) and mix well.
  4. Add the flour and sugar, mix well.
  5. In a small saucepan, cook the butter until it takes a light amber colour (usually about 2-3 min), then pour into the batter and mix well.

  7. Once it's cooled slightly, remove the cake from the baking tin and place on a cooling rack to cool.
