Banana Bread


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)


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Grease a loaf tin with butter and line with baking paper.

  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!

What are some of your favourite recipes? 🙂
