Banana Bread

Today we had so many bananas and because it’s Richard’s favourite, I decided to bake banana bread. It turned out divine and I am going to share my recipe with you. It has been in our family for quite a few generations:


125 g butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 free range eggs
2 cups flour / 8 ounces
2 tsp baking powder
4-6 really ripe babanas
1 tsp vanilla essence
half tsp salt

1. Beat sugar and butter until creamy then add vanilla.
2. Add eggs one at a time and beat.
3. Sift dry ingredients together and add to butter and sugar mix.
4. Mash babanas and add to the mixture.
5. Mix well and put into a small greased loaf pan.

Bake @ 180 degrees celsius for an hour.

    Hi Linda,
    YUMmmmm, thanks again, will be trying this as soon as I manage to find some bananas that don’t taste like chalk 🙁
    South African fruit is really the best!
