How To make Banana Bread

0
Your rating: None
This recipe is hearty and healthy. A great recipe to use up all those over-ripe bananas. A great tea-time treat with your favourite cuppa. You could also add chopped walnuts or pecan nuts for a crunchy texture.
What you'll need: 
7oz plain flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
2 1/2 oz butter or margarine at room temperature
4 oz caster sugar
3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs, beaten
1: 
Pre-heat the oven at Gas 4. Grease and flour a 8 1/2 x 4 1/2in loaf tin.
2: 
Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, if using, into a bowl. If using the chopped walnuts or pecan nuts, add them to these dry ingredients.
3: 
In another bowl, combine the butter with the caster sugar and beat thoroughly until the mixture is light and fluffy.
4: 
Add the mashed bananas and eggs, and mix well. Add to the dry ingredients and mix quickly and thoroughly.
5: 
Spoon into the greased loaf tin. Bake in the centre of the oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a skewer is inserted in the centre and comes out clean.
6: 
Cool the bread for 5 minutes before turning out on to a wire rack to cool completely.
Conclusion: 
An absolutely delicious tea-time treat.
