Banana Bread.

i always make this when we have several mushy bananas around the house! a simple recipe open for additions, walnuts or honey would be delicious me thinks.

so as you can see its a very simple recipe with a few ingredients that are available pretty much everywhere.

the mixture itself was fairly thin, more like a cake batter than a bread dough, so don't worry if it seems a bit liquid-y. it filled up about half a loaf tin, and bearing in mind it rises, so makes a generous sized loaf.

i always think a loaf doesn't look quite right without a big crack down the middle. it rises up a decent amount, and goes a medium golden brown when done.


2 large or 3 small mushy bananas, squished up
1 egg
225g self raising flour
55g butter
115g caster sugar
3 tablespoons yoghurt
1/2 teaspoon salt

in a large bowl cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
mix in the egg and squished up bananas.
sift in together the flour and salt.
mix in the yoghurt.

pour into a greased loaf tin and place in the oven at 180 degrees for around 1 hour. you'll know its done when its golden brown and a skewer comes out clean.

eat warm with salted butter. yums.
