Banana Bread

Do you get Banana's like these in your fruit bowl ?

I do and it drives me crazy....LM won't eat a banana when is starts to go black so usually they just end up in the bin....

Not no more.

I was given this recipe from a mother at LM's orientation day and have made it twice now and both times have been a great success.

The LM loves to help make this up which is good because this is a very easy recipe..

                                                              Michelle's Banana Bread

2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 brown sugar
2 eggs lightly beaten
1/3 cup (80ml) oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 ripe bananas mashed
 butter and honey to serve

preheat oven to 180c
grease loaf pan

mix flour baking powder and cinnamon into large bowl.stir in the sugars
in a  separate bowl combine eggs oil and vanilla -add to the  dry ingredients with mashed banana and fold till just combined-do not over mix

Place in loaf pan and bake for 50minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of loaf comes out clean.
Cool for 10mins ( yeah like that is going to happen in my house )
Slice thickly and spread with butter and honey.

The LM just eats it plain and quite enjoys it....Come to think of it he enjoys all food  


  1. Not one of my favourites. It's very popular in all the coffee shops though

  2. sounds delish....will have to come for a coffee and hope you have some. xxxx

  3. Nothing like a great recipe for home baked banana bread.. the butter honey addition sounds great!

  4. You prompted me to make some! I haven't made it in ages - and Annaleise loved it. Within five minutes of reading your blog, Annaleise was mashing banana's (banana EVERYWHERE!!!) and we just put in gluten free flour.

    It was really sweet. We were using Mums big mixing bowl, its really special to me, as it was her wedding present from Aunty Elaine (dads sister who passed away) and it features so strongly in my childhood memories. Every cake, every slice, everything was mixed in that bowl, :)

    Yesterday Annaleiuse was mixing her Banana Bread in it and I was telling her that no one on earth made Banana Cake like her Nanny Jan. Beautiful new memories made. xx
