Banana Bread Receipe

. Thursday, 4 April 2019 .
Banana bread is one of my absolute favourite things to bake, because it's basically cake but is also kind of healthy because it has bananas in it... right? I've mentioned banana bread a few times on my Instagram stories and on my YouTube channel now and several people have asked for my recipe, so I thought I'd share it with you all! I used to use a couple of different recipes that I found online, but I've tweaked it and played with it until I'm happy with it. So this isn't completely original, but is my own take on a combination of other recipes. Without further ado, this is how I make banana bread!

I added blueberries into this banana bread, but it's just as tasty without! 

Ingredients:


  • 230g plain flour
  • 180g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 90g unsalted butter (+some for greasing)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 over ripe bananas
  • 85 ml milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • squirt of lemon juice

Method: 

  1. Start off by pre-heating your oven to 180 Celsius then grease and line your loaf tray. 
  2. Cream together your butter and sugar.
  3. Sieve your flour into the bowl with your butter and sugar mix, plus the bicarbonate of soda. 
  4. Mash up your bananas, a few lumps are fine but you generally want it quite mushy. You could blend them if you'd rather, but they're easy enough to just mash up with a fork. 
  5. Add the bananas to the rest of your ingredients, including the eggs, milk, vanilla extract and the lemon juice. 
  6. Combine everything together in a bowl. If you want to add in some extra ingredients now is the time to do it! I like to add blueberries, as you can see from the photo, but you could really add whatever takes your fancy. I'd quite like to try adding some Nutella spread one day, but I haven't tried that myself yet so can't vouch for it.
  7. Pour your mix into the loaf tray and pop it in the oven for approx 50-60 mins. You'll know the banana bread is ready when it's gone a gorgeous dark brown colour on the top. If you use a skewer to test the middle of the loaf, it should come out moist but not sticky. Banana bread is much more moist than most cakes, so the skewer won't come out as dry as you'd expect it usually. 
So that's my take on banana bread - I'd love for you guys to try it out and let me know what you think!
