banana bread

5 ingredients + optional | 45 minutes prepping/cooking | roughly 8 portions

I like bananas still green. But as I discovered through trial and error they taste of nothing in banana bread, for that you need to leave them hanging around for about 3 days until they look kind of like this:


  • 200g self raising flour
  • 100g butter
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons runny honey
  • 2 tablespoons OJ
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Mix together all the ingredients except the bananas.


Mash the bananas separately then stir loosely into the mix.

Scoop into a greased loaf tin and put into the oven for 40 minutes at 170 degrees.
