Firstly, let me apologise for my disappearance from my blog this month! I can’t tell you yet where I have been yet, but hopefully in the next week or so I will be able to update you! It’s so exciting! 🙂
As many of you know, I love baking and I’m always looking online for new recipes to try out. If I find ones that I really love, I like to share them with you all so you can check them out to try them! 🙂
I found an amazing recipe for banana bread on BBC Good Food (All credit to them for this recipe!) and I was literally able to use up what I already had in the house to make it from and usually I’m having to pop to the supermarket for some bits.
You will need:
140g butter, softened – you’ll need extra for greasing the tin too!
140g caster sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
140g self raising flour
1tsp baking powder
2 very ripe bananas
50g icing sugar (for decoration)
handful of dried banana chips for decoration (optional)
Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Grease a loaf tin with butter and line with baking paper.
- Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then add in the eggs, I like to do it a little at a time, and then add in the flour also a little at a time.
- Mush up your bananas and add these into your mixture along with your baking powder. Mix all together and once combined, pour into your tin.
- Bake for about 30 mins, until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the middle. Once removed from the oven, leave to cool for 10 minutes, and then remove from tin and place on a wire rack.
- For the decoration, mix together your icing sugar with 2-3 tsp of water – depends how runny you’d like it! Drizzle the icing across the cake and if you like add some dried banana chips. I didn’t add these as I didn’t have any in at the time!
How easy is that! It’s so yummy and perfect with a cup of tea/coffee. I’m hoping to get a Kitchen Aid at some point as I’m really loving baking lately!
