As requested by Yvette and Isabelle!
- 2 ripe bananas
- 100g soft butter
- 175g golden caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 225g self-raising flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2-3 tablespoons milk
- Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.
- Mash the bananas, then beat together with the other ingredients in a large bowl using an electric whisk, for about 2 minutes. Add a little extra milk if it looks a bit stiff. It should pour quite easily into the tin.
- Pour into a buttered and lined loaf tin (900g), and bake for 1 hour until risen and golden brown. Cool in the tin for a few minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. It freezes well.
Add a pinch of cinnamon, some chocolate chips, or some dried fruit (e.g. raisins) for a twist!
Lakeland sell wonderful loaf tin liners which are really useful!
