Banana Bread

Back to recipe index

Tea and banana bread with Charlotte and Bob, we suspect that Bob was too polite to mention that he does not like bananas!

Ingredients: 75g soft margarine, 4 ripe bananas (mashed), 175g brown sugar, 1 egg, 225g plain flour, 2 teaspoonfuls of baking powder.           

Pre heat the oven to 180c/350f/gas mark 4.

1. Beat the sugar and the margarine together in a mixing bowl using a wooden spoon. Add the egg and mix until creamy. Slowly mix in the flour. Stir in the baking powder and bananas.

2. Line a bread tin with greaseproof paper. Spoon the mixture into the tin. Pop in the oven and bake in the centre of the oven for 1 hour.

Allow to cool before slicing.
