Banana loaf

As requested by Yvette and Isabelle!

Banana loaf

  • Servings: cuts into 10 thick slices
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 100g soft butter
  • 175g golden caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
