Banana Bread

Last week was Federal Election time which brings with it P&C sausage sizzles and cake stalls at polling booths.

I had 18 bananas in the freezer and made 6 batches of banana bread. 5 for school and 1 for us. It was so delicious, I thought I’d share the recipe with you:


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 125 grams butter, melted, cooled
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base inside of an 11 x 20 x 6cm deep loaf pan.
  2. Combine flours, sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl. 
  3. Whisk butter and eggs together, stir in the banana.
  4. Combine the dry and wet ingredients and pour into the prepared pan. 
  5. Place mixture into the oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Serve warm, spread with butter.

Such a simple recipe, but the result is a delicious banana bread!
Today I have served it with honey, strawberries and cream for a visit from my brother and his kids!
